    How do I delete an entire time machine backup and setup the external hardrive again
    I want to just start over from scratch. How would I go about doing this. I know it was simple I just can't remember for the life of me I want to backup my computer as it is at maximum capacity and then just delete the stuff I don't actively use. THanks!!

    Couldnt you just go into disk util and erase/format the drive after that the next time you plug it in time machine should ask if you want to use it for back up.
