Hi all,


I've been researching this for a while and haven't yet found a solution. I deleted old time machine backups from an external hard drive that used to function as my time machine drive. I emptied it using option + "empty trash", so the trash truly is empty. However, my hard drive still says that it's filled with the backup. I've pulling my hair out trying to get this thing eradicated. I analyzed my hard drive using OMNI Sweep, and even IT doesn't show the backup anywhere. I'm at a loss. Is there a solution besides reformatting?
