comment How can I manually delete old backups to free space for Time Machine?
I have a problem where my Mac name is the same but when I got a new hard drive it has a new name, and so I have two different directories in each timestamped folder, and I'd like to delete only the backups from my old hard drive, and not the new one. Is this possible? I tried using the path of `/Volumes/volume_name/Backups.backupdb/mac_name/YYYY-MM-DD-hhmmss/old_volume_nam‌​e' with tmutil delete but an error of "Invalid deletion target. (error 64)" Any thoughts on how to delete those backups?
