It's highly likely that this is your problem. IMO it'd be better to delete old backups rather that bother to defragment the drive. I backup *Files* every day (you may even want continuous backup of Files) but full System images really only need to be saved after configuration changes, and then I only keep a couple, three, or four of these, after which I can't imagine restoring back any further anyway.
