My Mid 2009 MBP with a 500 GB hard drive has been running pretty sluggish lately. I decided to clean house, move a lot of larger files (movies, pictures etc.) to an external HD to see if things would smooth out. I have 213 GB of movies I moved to a 500 GB external along with all of my pictures. When I check the storage space in "about this mac" it says 250 GB is of the 500 GB is taken up with "Backups". I use time machine to back my computer up on a 1 TB external, and never have backed anything up on this hard drive (except my iPhone). Can anyone help me find these "backups" and delete them? Here is a screen capture of the about this mac...
