Can’t Delete Individual Files From Time Machine

October 9, 2008

I have to say that overall I’m fairly happy with the Apple Time Capsule that I purchased.  It does a reliable job of backing up files on the various Macs that I have sprinkled around the house.

I recently happened to have a small problem that a cursory Google search has been unable to resolve – when I tried to delete a specific file from the Time Machine backup, I got a prompt for my username and password but was unable to enter the password in the password field because the cursor didn’t show up there.

Of course, in the absence of a password the file wasn’t deleted.  Anyone else have this problem?  Any suggested fix?
