I need some advice from the Time Machine experts out there. I made the mistake of going into Time Machine and deleting the oldest backup files myself by moving to Trash.. (instead of letting Time Machine manage it's self by deleting the oldest files when the disk is full).
Now, I can't Empty Trash when Time Machine is plugged in:
"The operation cant be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -8003)."
And Time Machine can no longer backup, it doesn't delete files automatically to make space anymore and this error message pops up:
"This backup is too large for the backup disk. The backup requires 81.12 GB but only 76.78 GB are available.".
All of those previous backup files are stuck in the Trash and can't be deleted to make space for new backups.
How can I solve this problem?
Thank you in advance!
