Hi,

In that case, you will want to delete the older backups to make some space available.

I have to go out for a few hours now.

Thanks for the help.

Is it alright to delete the old back up files? I have now cancelled the windows back up and will back up onto an external drive from now on.

Dear Golden,
I ma not sure that you will see this reply, but I must try. My problem is that when I check disk space on C partion in windows it shows that only 4,40 GB is free of 58,4 GB. I checked everything, but I cant files which are big enough to fulfill this space. That I saw your advice here and installed WinDirStat. Picture is attached. I don't you have any other suggestion what is the problem and do you know how I can find files which are responsible for fulfilling my hard drive?
