Backup Disk Full

Greetings,

I am running SBS2003 with mostly XP workstations. I run NT backup to external hard drives. (daily diffs and weekly full) The backup drives are full so the backups are failing. Can I just delete the old backups to make room for the new ones? Also, I didn't set these up, but I was under the impression that they would overwrite? Any input would be helpful. Thank you.

So I only need to keep the latest "fulls" for the Diffs to run. For example, there are fulls that date back several years ago. Also, if the diffs were deleted, wouldn't they be recreated as sonn as the first full was completed? (which is once a week)
