time machine cannot be erased.

History

I have not used my TM for a year. Would like to erase that partition and disk utility fails, says drive cannot be unmounted. How can i correct this prob. I'm not using TM and would like to reclaim that space.

Are you backing up to another partition on the same hard drive?

mayer,
