I recently reinstalled macOS Monterey (12.0.1) on my MacBook Air (Intel, 2020) and restored data from my Time Machine backup; APFS format.
That went well, but after I did this it seems like my external storage drive, named “Storage”, now has an older clone next to it called “Storage 1” in recent snapshots. See screenshot below of snapshot
I assume some kind of identifier for the system and drive itself changed when the restore happened. I am fine with that. But this fairly useless — and redundant — “Storage 1” is taking up about 700GB of space.
I can’t seem to just delete it as a Time Machine backup is “Read Only” to the Finder and Terminal since this is the newer Time Machine format that uses APFS and snapshots instead of HFS+ and a standard filesystem scheme.
What can I do to toss this “Storage 1” folder in the snapshots and free up that 700GB?
