OS X Leopard: What Happens When Your Backup Disk Is Full?

I always wondered what would happen if my backup disk I used for Leopard’s Time Machine feature ran out of space.

Yesterday I finally found out (and yes, I realized that it has been mentioned in the manual, also)…

As I have set up my backup partition on an external Firewire drive to exactly the same size as my hard disk inside the MacBook Pro (160 GB), that means that I’ve been producing about 60 GB of changing data since I installed Leopard and ran Time Machine for the first time in the end of November. Wow.
