    I did a full back up to my secure zone and, since then, have been doing scheduled incremental backups - always successfully. I thought that the program would delete the oldest increments when the zone was full, to create space for a new backup but this is not the case. It has just rung up "tilt." What does one do next? Secure Zone Wizard does not provide the answer.

    Greetings asker24,

    I don't use the Secure Zone, but, as far as I know, your problem comes from only making Incremental backups; the entire chain of one Full and all subsequent Incrementals is required for TI to restore. If Secure Zone were to delete any, it would need to delete the most recent; hardly the result you want.

    The solution is to make a new full backup periodically, which should set the Secure Zone's file management into action. Here's a recent post from TheWeaz who explains Secure Zone's file management scheme quite well:

    And, another post, in which foghorne describes an excellent way to manage TI files manually, for those of us who don't use the secure zone:

    That should overwrite your intitial full backup, and begin the process again.

    You might modify your scheme to include two full image backups, and incrementals chained to those, rather than relying on just the one. Then, you won't lose the only full backup you have each time you make a new one, and, you should have two to restore from, should one ever not cooperate.

    Regards
