I simply bought a newer MacBook Professional than my present Late 2013 and within the transitory time during which I will nonetheless have each however utilizing solely the newer one, I want to preserve the latest a part of the Time Machine historical past of the older one which went means again, occupying some 1TB of information.
I’ve already trimmed 2/3 of the oldest snapshots (of the unique ~40) with the
tmutil delete command however the general occupied area diminished by nearly 250GB. I believe there’d be some (or a lot) area to be claimed presumably.
I’ve learn concerning the
hdiutil command which has a selected
compact subcommand for the aim however this appears to work solely with .sparsebundle Time Machine backups format and I can not discover any different for use with the .backupbundle format.
What am I lacking? Is there any free different command or utility to do the job?
P.S. The MacBook Professional in query runs on Catalina
