Hi there!


I have a mid 2009 Macbook, it was with 52GB of pictures on its own HD, so I transfered all of it to external HD and deleted on the Macbook (I was looking to free some space on the HD) but now the space free has been occupied by 59GB of backups even though my Time Machine is setted to an external HD.

Could somebody help me, I wish to delete some of those backups?

Or any idea how to get the speed back since it has been running really slow?

Thank you in advance!


MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
