Using an Airport Extreme or Time Capsule to make Time Machine backups on your network is very convenient.  But I found that once that machine is gone, I could not delete the old TM backup.  I kept getting this error:

“The operation can’t be completed because some items had to be skipped. For each item, choose File > Get Info, make sure “Locked” is deselected, and then check the Sharing & Permissions section. When you are sure the items are unlocked and not designated as Read Only or No Access, try again.”

After trying to change the permissions without success, I found this terminal command works:

sudo rm -rf <Path to the TM backup file>

Hint: to easily type the path to the TM backup file just drag it into the terminal window.

Hope this helps anyone else out there.
