This could sound like a really dumb question as I don't even know what I did wrong. Please help!
I have had this LaCie backup (500 GB) for years since my friend suggested few years ago. I have been pluging it in my mac every few months and just let it do its thing. Luckily, I never have to retrieve any info from it.
Recently, I started using some Adobe software and now have a lot of large files in my lapto. When I tried to back up today, I thought to myself: "I do not need all the old backups, maybe I'll just delete it all and start fresh!"
So I plugged in the time machine and just grabbed the whole folder that labeled as my mac's backup to the trash. Without much thinking, I typed my password when a window popped and ask for administrator's password.
But now I can't backup my laptop as it says I have only 150 GB available and my it needs 300 some to backup. Is it possible that I "accidentally" deleted my 300 some GB space from my LaCie?? I went to the trash folder trying to find "what exactly" I deleted but can't find anything and am very confused. Please help?
Thank you very much. Elsie
