HT4522 I would like to delete some time capsule files that I erased from my mac. Please and thanks

Please help me deleting some files that are in my time capsule which I have erased from my computer
thank you

Since you deleted the files on your Mac, Time Machine will eventually delete them automatically from the Time Capsule, so you really need do nothing.
If you really do want to delete the files right now, open Time Machine, wait for it to load and use the timeline on the right side of the window to go back to a date when the files were still on your Mac.
Use the Finder like interface to navigate to the specific file that you want to delete and click on it to highlight it
Click the gear icon at the top of Time Machine window and click "Delete all backups of  xxxxxxxx"
Do the same for other files that you want to delete.
Click Cancel at the lower left of the window to return to your normal desktop

  • I deleted time capsule files that were old, but now they won't delete from the trash

    I deleted some time capsule files from the drive I am using for time machine.  It placed them in the trash, but it won't delete them.  It is asking if I want to delete only locked files or if I want to delete all files.  I have tried both, but they are still showing up in the trash.  It won't remove them.  Does anyone have any suggestions, as I do not know what else to do.  By the way I tried holding the option key and clicking empty trash and that did not work either.

    Are these files being used by Time Machine. If so, this is how to delete files from a Time Machine backup. You can not delete them using Finder. Mac 101: Time Machine
    Deleting data from a Time Machine backup
    To delete all backups of one or more items from a Time Machine backup, follow these steps:
    Click the Time Machine icon on your Dock to enter the Time Machine restore interface.
    Click on the item you would like to delete. Command-click to select multiple items.
    Control-click (or right click) the highlighted item(s) and select "Delete All Backups of..." from the contextual menu, or select "Delete all backups of..." from the Action Item menu.
    Authenticate with an administrator password when prompted.
    Important:  Do not use the Finder to move to the items to the Trash, or to move or delete items in your Time Machine backup repository. The folder containing your Time Machine backup repository is called "Backups.backupdb" and is located on the external disk or Time Capsule you have chosen in Time Machine preferences.

    You can't permanently delete any item from your purchase history, all you can do is hide them via your computer's iTunes so that they don't show in the Purchased links for redownloading : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4919

  • HT1178 I would like to update to time capsule. My existing extreme is connected to 4 express around the house. If I install capsule, do I have to reset all express machines or will it work automatically?

    Thanks!

    You need to start over.. the MAC addresses are different.. if you try it will fail.. even with the same names and same IP addresses because it is not the same box.. it is much better to start over.
    And even use a wholly different naming structure.. short.. 2-20 characters no spaces.. and pure alphanumerics.
    It doesn't take long really to redo it.

  • I would like to delete a google pref cookie that re-establishes itself instantly even when I am on a blank new tab that looks like this: PREF ID=eb1514ca52c9d

    I would like to delete a google pref cookie that re-establishes itself instantly even when I am on a blank new tab-- it looks like this:
    name: PREF
    content: ID=eb1514ca52c9d753:TM=1403658310:LM=1403658310:S=CQKzVsy8LHiPFFmX
    domain: .google.com
    path: /
    send for: Any type of connection
    it might be helpful just to know what it's doing, since I don't have any google/gmail/youtube accounts...

    What page are you using for your new tab page? Is it completely blank or is it the page with the thumbnails, but with the thumbnails hidden (in that case, there usually is a grid-like icon on the upper right side of the page)?
    You can check the current setting here:
    (1) In a new tab, type or paste '''about:config''' in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.
    (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste '''newtab''' and pause while the list is filtered
    (3) Double-click the '''browser.newtab.url''' preference and enter your preferred page if it isn't what you want:
    * ''Page thumbnails (default)'' => about:newtab
    * ''Blank tab'' => about:blank
    * ''Built-in Firefox home page'' => about:home
    * ''Any other page'' => full URL to the page
    Press Ctrl+t to open a new tab and verify that it worked. Fixed?
    But... extensions can override this setting. If you are getting a page other than the one you specified, that could be explanation.
    Any luck?

  • I would like to reset my time capsule since there are old files which I don't need any more. How should I do it?

    Everything is working fine, I just would like to delete the old files and buck up the new one.
    What steps should I take?

    This will make it fresh-from-the-factory clean.
    If the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule isn't accessible from AirPort Utility, the Factory Default reset can be accomplished by using the reset button.
    1. Unplug the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule from power.
    2. Press and hold the reset button with a pen or pencil, then plug the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule back in while continuing to hold the button until you see the light (LED) flash rapidly. This should happen after a few seconds.
    3. Release the button. This will factory default reset the AirPort Base Station or Time Capsule.

    I'm not sure if that affects files on AirDisk, but you can easily erase the disk in AirPort Utility after you do the above reset.

  • Would like to delete some of the movies on my Apple tv1, but the movies list  (and the music list as well is all greyed out. How can I proceed??

    How can I delete some of the movies on my Apple tv1? The movies list and also the music list are greyed out. Hope some one has an idea as I can't figure it out!

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    The best way would be transfer them to your iTunes library, but if you wish to delete them instead, select the trash can on the right hand side of the listing on the Apple TV, you can't delete them using iTunes on your mac/PC?

  • HT204053 I have two itunes accounts and would like to delete one of them so that there is no confusion. So how can I delete one of the accounts???

    need to delete on of my itunes accounts
    any help. I've searched the apple website and can't seem to find any information on deleting an itunes account.

    It's not currently possible to delete an account, all you can do is remove any personal info from and stop using it - but any content that you downloaded from iTunes with it will remain tied to that account, and only that account will be able to re-download its content, authorise its content on a new computer, and download updates to its apps.

  • TS2972 I would like to share my iTunes libraries with my Apple TV from both my iMac and Macbook Pro, but I use the same iTunes account on both devices. Is it possible to link my Apple TV to both devices at the same time?

    I recently purchased an Apple TV, and I currently have it linked to my iMac with my iTunes account. I also have a newer MacBook Pro that has some different iTunes media on it than my iMac does, but they share iTunes accounts. Is it possible to link both devices at the same time, have access to media on both computers, and use the same iTunes account on both computers?? It seems Apple TV will only link to one iTunes account per computer, but can access multiple computers if different iTunes accounts are activated on those computers.

    You can share multiple libraries with the Apple TV, they don't even need to use the same iTunes account. Just make sure that you use the same ID for homesharing on all devices.

  • I have an iMac with OS 10.9.5 and CS6. I would like to open some Kodak .pcd files from 1998. What's the answer, third party software?

    The question is in the title.

    Yes. Graphic Converter 9 does support .pcd and you can convert it to something like jpeg or png.
    You can download and trial it here:

    You cannot.  This is not legal.  You have no legal right to these apps.

  • I would like to delete photos in my Photoshop Elements 12

    I Have 15212 photos in Photoshop Elements 12 and I would like to delete some of them.

    The only way to do that would be to add them to a shared stream.  The disadvantage is that they will be a lower resolution than the original photos.   Another option if you have a lit of music on your device would be to sync it all off, the sync it back after the update using iTunes.
