Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
That's not the way of deleting old backups. In order to delete Time Machine backups, read this Pondini's page > http://pondini.org/TM/12.html

Thanks but I tried this and no longer am able to open my files. It suggests I copy them and reformat the drive. My LaCie external HD does not mount unless I restart. It shows my files, but I am unable to open them. Could it be a power cord? I've seen some mention HD not mounting because of power cord problems. I don't know how to copy the files from the external HD to a new HD if it's the problem with the whole HD.
