If you have space problems, it sounds like you need to adjust your backup and recovery strategy.  You should only keep a few days on disk and the rest on tape.

Deleting 'failed' backups will likely not 'fix' a space issue for long.


You can manually delete the files then do a crosscheck.

Just make sure you know what ones you are deleting.
