How do I get...

How do I get my backup drive to delete previous backups when the drive is full?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand, model, and Operating System (OS) of your computer?

MacBook os 10 Iomega back up

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your MacBook?

Tried to delete the old backups but my computer won't allow it. Or it gets confused when trying to remove the old files.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

Is it possible to wipe the Iomega and start over?

Please disregard this question I do not need an answer. I am sorry that I did not know you are going to nick me $48,00 for this. I could have bought a new hard drive for what you are charging so don't bother and give me a refund.
