    Hello,

    I am using Paragon Back Up And Recovery 10 Free Edition.

    I am backing up a 149GB Laptop Drive to a 1TB External Drive. It says the daily backup approx archive size will be 40.2GB

    So, after about a month of backing (using the internal scheduler) up my 1TB drive is now full.

    What I did was manually delete all the last months back ups off the 1TB drive and am now backing up a fresh copy..

    But.....I was wondering if there is any way to automate this process....

    Is there a way to have the software back up the days files/image for say 1 week and then overwrite the next weeks back up over the last weeks back up so that I do not keep running out of space, and so I always have the most current data backed up...OR is there a better way to do this without running out of space and without replacing my 1TB external backup drive each time it is full.

    I look forward to hearing what the others have to say.

    Thanks!
