    Hey
    If I do an incremental every night and it finally runs out of room, does it simply not perform the backup? Does it delete the full backup? Or deletes the most recent incremental? Thanks :)

    Hello Jaxx,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/).

    If there is not enough space on the disk to create the image file you will be given an error message and there will be the entry in the log of Acronis True Image stating the reason for the error. Acronis True Image will not delete any files on your computer.

    Thank you.

    OK, lets say I am about to run out of room. Can I delete my onw incremental files leaving only the full back up? Will True Image know to make a new incremental based on the contents of the remaining full backup? Or should I delete everything and start with a new full backup? Thanks.

    Nice Question. I'm missing a guidance in the operation manual how to schedule a backup (for newcomers) and how to realize a backup strategy. I don't want to manually remove backup files. I would like to have a "self-running-1-week-father-son-backup-process :) Do the True Image task planing features have this capability?

    I think you'll find something suitable in this <previous thread> or one of its embeded links.
