I have a Mac Mini Server running the latest version of Mavericks and OS X Server. I would like to do a full backup of my server. I have no business need to keep the backups currently on the disk. Can I just turn off Time Machine and delete Backups.backupdb through Finder or Terminal? I also want to make sure that when I delete the backups that I can remove them from Trash.
I have done searching on this but have only found information on how to delete backups of certain files or moving the backup disk to another volume.
