    Hi all

    I am trying to clear out my mac book pro to give you some context. I have a 120GB SATA Disk with lion (yes its quite old) but it works. However having looked at the storage I only have 2.68 GB of memory left. So have down loaded omni sweeper to see what files i have by size. It appears that I have 32.5 GB of backups (photos). I also have a time machine with al the data on so my question is am I able to delete the backup files that are on the macbook or am I about to have a nasty surprise.

    Any help / thoughts appreciated.

    If you delete items from your drive, make sure your backup settings don't cause those items to also be deleted from your backup, and you should be fine.
