    Can I clear out pictures that have been automatically backed up to time machine, and how if so?

    I needed to do a similar thing. I have been going nuts ripping my DVDs for my ATV and as a result of letting my iMac run all night doing encodes time machine had been backing up those files. Next thing I no, I only have 130 gigs left on a 500 gig drive. Well, I came across this article:

    It's a bit of a tedious process but I just did it and I now have 373 gigs of free space on my TM disk!
