    So i have on my time capsule hdd, an old back up from my old imac
    Can i go to finder to my airport and delete that backup file from data folder?

    I have exclude some folders to get more space on my time capsule, but that space when i press backup now..is still the same
    If i exclude some folders i must erase and make a full back up again?

    I think so, all I get is lock ups when I try to poke around the time capsule in finder. Not sure that is how they envisioned this working.

    Subscribed though, good question....

    Just so I understand, you want to remove the old backups of these excluded folders from the Time Machine backup?

    Click the Time Machine menu item then "Enter Time Machine". When the interface comes up navigate to the folder you have excluded, then right click and select delete all backups of "folder name".
