I have a 3T drive partitioned into 3 sections. 2.25T full of home videos. 500G for time machine. and 2.25G for copy clone. Just confirming? Using disk utility can I erase the time machine portion and leave the data on all the other portions safely intact? I obviously don't want to risk deleting my home videos. Thanks --- Post Merged, Jan 30, 2016 --- I muffed up my tie machine backups by putting them in the trash and can't delete them. So will this erase them from my trash? And if there is any risk to the other partitions on the disk?
