    so i bought a time capsule last month and backed up my macbook on it.. (love it btw). but anyway my roomate also has a macbook and i let him back it up on my time capsule as well... now were both moving to different locations and i want to get rid of his backup to allow for more space.. how do i do this from my macbook?... is it possible?

    if not would i have to reset it? or maybe get him to get rid of it on his macbook?.. (he would give me a hard time so id rather be able to just delete his stuff myself, and hes taking up significantly more space on it than i am so i want it off)

    Thank you very much

    Open the network drive in Finder. Find his sparsebundle, and delete it.
