how to manually run the backuppc nightly process

If you by accident setup backuppc to do something you did not mean to, and you really do not want to wait until the next day to get the disk space back(after nightly cleanup) you can run the job manually by running
/usr/share/backuppc/bin/BackupPC_nightly 0 255
as the backuppc user.

It may take some time as in my case where it needed to clear out about 250 gigs. But it will finish.
