I wanted to transfer a folder (of 5 gigas) from my iMac to my macbook air (both running Lion OS) using a thunderbolt cable, so I started my macbook air on target disk mode (by starting it up while holding the key T) and on my iMac I went to the time machine utility, switched it on and selected the disk from the macbook air, I selected the folder, copied it to my macbook air's dekstop, the whole process took me less than 2 minutes. I disconnected the cable, turned the macbook air on and the folder was in the desktop as I wanted, however, it was created automatically a backup of my iMac on my macbook air. So now I am kind of lacking space and I want to delete the backup, but unfortunately, I can't find the backup on my macbook.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
