remove backuppc backups manually

This is an example how to remove backup number 45 from localhost

su -l backuppc
cd /var/lib/backuppc/pc/localhost
rm -fR 45

That will delete the backup, then you need to run the

/usr/share/backuppc/bin/BackupPC_nightly 0 255

to actually remove the files from the pool.
