    I am running version 11. I am doing differentials into the Secure Zone. The last backup ran out of room and it displays this message:
    But, according to the manual:
    I never get an "OK" prompt. Why am I not being given the opporunity to delete older backups? Did I set something up wrong?

    Your mistake was not , at some point, to create a second full image. Had you done so FIFO management would have started.

    However do not despair just create a new full image. The zone will accept it after deleting the first one.

    From here on in create a full image before the zone is full and all will be well with no more full up messages.

    Actually, what I did was to start with an empty Secure Zone. Then I created a Differential Backup task that would run periodically. I believe that the first time a Differential runs, if there is not already a full-backup, it will instead create a full-backup. After that, it will create normal differentials. Is my understanding here correct?
    Well, OK. I'll try that right now and see what happens.
