Hello, I am using a mid-2012 MacBook Air and on doing manual Time Machine back-ups every 2-3 days to an external HD.  So as not to needlessly fill up my external HD, can I simply delete all but the most recent back-ups?  Is this recommended?  Thanks for any ideas/thoughts!

MacBook Air (13-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
