So pull out my fingernails with pliers!! I just thought there looked like too many iPhone and iPad files in there and deleted some.

I have been on hold Apple for Applecare support. After I explained to the guy what I did, I asked if I could get the backup file back using Time Machine.

He said, "I'll have to ask someone as I don't support Macs and don't know Time Machine." This is an Applecare phone rep!!

He's back. Going to transfer me to Time Machine group for help.
