I am attempting to delete an iMac back-up (Bob's 20" iMac) which is located on my Time Capsule and I don't know if I'm doing it correctly.


In the Finder, I have located the backup as follows:           Bob'sTime Capsule>Data> Bob's 20" iMac



I right-clicked Bob's 20" iMac and selected  "Move to Trash"


A small Trash window has been chugging on my desktop for about 36 hours which ststes "Deleteing Bob's 20" iMac"


The size of the backup is 1.16 TB. Is this proceeding properly in which case I just need to be patient and wait for the process to finish?


Or, is therw another method I should use to delete said backup.


Thanks very much.
