    Free Up Macbook Backup storage
    I deleted maybe about 200GB or more from a music collection I had in iTunes. I deleted them from the iTunes media folder as well as in the recycle bin. I was wondering how do I free up space in my backups? I want to start over with a clean Mac. Thanks in advance

    If you want to start over with a clean Mac and don't want your backups.

    Do a clean reinstall of OS X on your Mac.
    After that is done, you're up and running, everything looks good...

    Then repartition/format the backup drive and create a new backup.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
