Quotas are constantly reached - no default overwrite

I have a Sonicwall CDP3440i with a 400gb capacity. I have 4 remote agents, each installed with a quota of 80gb. The quotas are constantly exceeded and therefore the agents are disabled. This seems to be due to the fact that the CDP device itself keeps infinite copies of the files it backs up rather than overwriting. The only way I can see to free up space is to "Delete the old copies". This doesn't suffice. I have one server that only has 60gb of data but in testing exceeds even a 120gb quota. Has anyone found a way to get around this without someone watching the device constantly and manually clearing old file revisions?

If anyone is interested to know, a renewal of my service agreement with SonicWall and a quick call fixed it. It's actually an issue with the # of revisions kept by the device and must be changed at the programming level. I have suggested they add this feature into the OS so users can change it.
