    Time Machine "cleaning up"

    Hello again. I am not pretty sure if this is the right section, having a problem with time machine (software) on a time capsule (hardware?)

    By the way: I have a macbook air 13' (early 2015) running Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.4, and a Time Capsule A1409.
    The time capsule is not full by far, it has actually a Terabyte of free space out of 2.

    I had noted, in the past, that backups of dates that I tought I should have had were greyed-out, as if they were too old (the hard drive has never been far from full in the past, either) but I wasn't sure and I still not am, so I didn't give importance to that.

    What seems weird now, and the reason why I'm asking, is that Time Machine is performing a cleaning up. Why is that, having so much free space? Is it compressing old files maybe, or deleting them?

    I could not find any option to limit the space dedicated to time machine, so I have always assumed that this kind of operation should have been performed when there was not space enough, which is not the case.

    Thank you in advance for any help!
