Deleting backup sets and or files

Posted: 01-16-2009, 03:33 PM
Vista Home Premium- no shadow copies.
I have one backup set, dated the day I started using the backup utility in
Vista. Contained within are 599 files and 138 folders. I need to recover
space on my external harddrive.

Some of these files are quite large-several gig and most are much smaller.
I'm assuming those are full backups and incremental backups. So do I delete
the entire backup set and start over, some-most-all of the files or folders,
or something else.

Many thanks
