Backup Repository Size Calculation, Delete Full Backups

Hi ...

Short Question ...

is it possible to delete the last full backup and the incrementals of the week if a new full backup is created ? My Backup drive is too small at the Moment.

What's the calculated Size of the Backup Rep. ? i've around 3tb data in an hyper-v enviroment, around 300 mb changing every day. my Backup Space is only 4.5 tb at the Moment.
I run a full backup on Sunday, incremental every day.

Thanks for your help,
Regards,
michael

Yes, you can manually remove the old chain to quickly release space. For space estimation, please use this tool.
