    I have a mbp and OS Lion 10.7.2. I notice with 'about this mac storage i have nearly 23gb of backup on my laptop. I think these are called local backups and I don't think I need them as I have TM and other external backups off site etc.
    My question is, where do i local this backup and how do i delete it and how do I set my computer to not do it again.
    Thank you for your help.

    I want to know how to find what "other" is too. I know my "other" seems to be the same size as my backups before I disabled the local backups.
