Re: Partitioning 5TB HDD: 2TB for Time Machine, 3TB for Photos - Which One First?

How do you prevent Time Machine from using all the available disk space?

In a word - you can't

It will continue to expand into the space not used by the images

A disk can be partitioned to provide protected space for backup and images

But - it is not the ideal solution and not one I use

I prefer to have each disk dedicated for the task
