I have BackupExec 11d 7170 SP5 running on Windows SBS 2003 SP2.

I backup to external hard drives but they are filling up and then failing.

I have a Veritas folder the has about 20% of the storage space
and a bunch of IMG**** folders that take up about 80% of the storage space.

What is the best way to setup my media to stop the drives from filling up.

I have 5 dirves and will replace them every 4-7 days
I have 40GB of data.
The drive size I have is 600GB

Thank you.

You should set them up so that the images are overwritable after 7 - 10 days.

I hope this helps !
