    Hello, I have a question regarding TM options.

    Is there a way to delete a single file from a snapshot without deleting the entire snapshot?

    Checked out documentation (i.e. man tmutil) and also googled but cannot find any relevant info?

    Thanks.

    If you find a file you would like to remove from the backup, you can secondary click on the file, and remove it from all backups.

    I have done this a couple of times when my forgot to blacklist a folder with some huge files in it.
