We have been backing up my MacBook air, and my wife's MacBook Pro to a 1 TB time capsule. My wife replaced her hard drive with a hard drive of the same size and restored it. Since then she receives a message that there's not enough memory on the time capsule to back up. In evaluating the time capsule, it appears that my backups are taking up 730 some gigabytes. I tried deleting old backup files using the finder, but it did not free up any space on the time capsule.

 

How can I free up space on my time capsule so that my wife can back up also?

    Deleting the old files out of the sparsebundle does not reduce the size of the sparsebundle..

     

    You should archive off the old backups erase the TC and start over.
