    Hi guys,

    I'm having some trouble backing up with Time Machine.

    It was working fine but now it says there is not enough space to backup.

    Why doesn't it just delete older backups like it did before?

    Thanks.

    Have you tried manually deleting old backups from your storage device?

    Remember not to do this from the Finder but from within Time Machine ONLY.

    I'm not exactly sure, but I know that if you start deleting things from within the Finder you can hose your Time Machine.

    I'm not 100% on this but either try doing it from the "star wars" display or try it from within system preferences.

    Any luck?
