I am using Time Machine on Mac (with 512GB SSD) to backup my files to a 2TB external drive, but it only worked for 2 days and now it's reporting lack of space to do more backups.
It only did 2 backups, as I can see those 2 dates inside the external drive, inside the backup folder.
Now I've realized that there are 2 "Recovery" folders, each one inside each day's backup folder. Inside there is a large "basesystem.dmg" file, so I'm getting 2 of these.
These are preventing me to do a proper use of Time Machine (and honestly I dont remember TM creating these Recovery folders, for each backup?
Is it safe to delete the Recovery folders from my time machine backup? What will I lose? If it's the ability to recover from a TM backup, is it necessary? Can I recover from my Mac's own recovery partition and then recover the data on the TM backup instead?
