    If you want to delete all the files you've backed up using Time Machine, yes you could throw away that folder, and empty the Trash.

    Note: this cannot be undone. The past will be lost forever.

    Yeap,what ziggyonice said. But remember that you can't undo that. With my time capsule,when i deleted a backup folder like yours i asked me my password and then gone. No trash no nothing. It doesn't go to trash. :)

    Erase the drive (or partition) that you use for time machine. this is the fastest way.

    I don't know what you're doing that you want to delete your entire time machine backup, but if you're just trying to reclaim a little bit of space, it is possible to delete individual backups from time machine. Just look here.
