10.7: Use local Time Machine as an instant safety net
Authored by: polarbreeze on Nov 10, '11 06:39:04PM

What's "new" in Lion is that TM now has a kind of caching feature that holds snapshots of your file changes even when you're not connected to your TM drive. It should have no lasting effect on disk space usage because it's just a cache.

By the same token, if you don't ever connect to your TM drive, yes, of course if will gobble up increasing amounts of your local drive because it never gets flushed. That, I think, is a mis-use of the feature.
