TopQuark (OS 10.11.6) Time Capsule is full - files not deleted

TopQuark Time Capsule Capacity: 999.83 Gb

Time Capsule Avalable:            709.16 Gb

TopQuark Hard Drive Used:       303.2 Gb

After few days backing up, Time Capsule reports being full. My understanding is older files would be deleted to make room for new backups. I have been erasing drive with Disk Utility to continue.

What do I need to get Time Machine to work by deleting older data?

I also use Acronis 2016 to back up MacMini HD to another external 1 TB external HD.

You really should have been using the Time Machine app or TMUtil to delete the old backups; in part, because indices to the backups are on the local drive.
Here's how to reset Time Machine and start fresh: http://pondini.org/TM/A4.html
