You can't do that. This is because the backups are tied to the network adapter's MAC address of the computer you are backing up with. You could "fake" the MAC address but this would make it impossible for you to use the iMac on a network (as it's MAC address would already be being used). Your only option is to delete the old iMac's backups or buy a new TC (best option if you want to keep the backups).

Many thanks! Received loud and clear!
Can you tell me how to delete the old iMac's backups? Simply by dragging what I see under the Time Capsule for the iMac onto the trash?

Do you see "<myname>'s iMac.sparsebundle"? If so, drag this to the Trash from the TC. If you're not sure, I would purchase a new TC as you may inadvertantly delete the wrong thing.

Scrapped the old back-up and did a new one. Ultimately and rather soon than latter I will buy a new bigger TC.
