Hidden backup files? That sounds like it would take an awfully large
amount of storage. Quite a waste. How are those hidden backup files to
be deleted? There are no .files on the disk.
Also, assuming that I did in fact Move To Trash instead of Delete, how
can I now erase those files? They do not show up on Ubuntu, and
emptying the trash does not help.
