Backup disk space - filling up rather quickly
I have a 1TB hard drive on my PC and a few months ago I bought another 1TB hard drive as a backup drive.
I back up every week or so using the windows disk image facility (Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup) , but each time I backup the space taken up on the backup drive increases drastically. It would appear to be backing up up ANOTHER image instead of overwriting the new one?
I canot find anywhere to say over-write the existing image, would I be better to delete the image before creating a new one?

I tried all of that -- no joy
Hi I'm having the same issue, backup fills up in just a few days, and then the warning.
I tried the manage space/system image/change options, I'm given only two:
1. Let Windows manage the space for backup history (279.44gb)
2:keep only the latest system image and minimize space used for backup
in both cases, it still fills up my external hard drive within a few days. It makes only one backup set, so I must delete the entire back up, and then run a new backup. And then within a few days it is full and I get the warning again.
I have 5.o6g on my c drive, and the backup drive is 1tb, so I don't get why this is such a problem?
From my searches on google, a solution does not seem hopeful. If microsoft can't fix this, can anyone recommend an alternative, more simpler, automated alternative?
Sincerely and Thanks,
