TimeCapsule problem

I have a macbook pro running SnowLeopard and an 1Tb TimeCapsule.
On my TC there is an (now old) back up file of 600Gb that I can not remove.
When I try I get: "preparing for deletion" then "deleting" but nothing happens (the deletion bar sticks at 0% for the whole night).

I managed top make a new backup so I have now a new (small) backup file but of course I want to get rid of the old one.

I laso tried to repair the file/disk with Disk Warrior, but it refuses to "see" the TC, even when directly connected with a cable.

Is there any way then reformatting to get rid of the big file?
How do I reformat the TC?
