Backup Destination Space Problem

To free-up disk space on the backup destination, is it possible to delete the increments and then run a fresh increment relative to the existing full backup?

Hi Martin,

If you delete the latest incremental restore point, backup job will treat it as backup chain corruption and start a new full. However, you can reduce the retention and start a backup job manually - that would trigger the backup job to merge old restore points into full.
