    I've noticed tha my HD space has been dropping quickly after I started using Backup. Then I noticed that Backup doesn't delete old files when I makes a new backup of the same info. Is it OK to delete the older backup files? If the last back up was a "Full" back up can I get rid of all the older "Incremental" back ups?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Yes, you can delete all the incrementals, the Backup App will start doing incrementals from what it finds in the main backup file.
