Windows 2008 Backup

Looking at the 'Restore' part of Win2008 backup there is a drop-down date entry for each previous backup. This I assume means that the backup size is getting larger and larger every backup, so what stops it eventually filling the disk wiuth previous backup states? I can't see an 'overwrite existing back' as in 2003.

OK so why are the previous bakups listed (by date) if the guide from the links above say (when choosing the backup destinantion):

A message informs you that the selected disk will be formatted and any existing data will be deleted.

there is a 'keep existing versions' switch in wbadmin that can be set to a sensible number.
