I am backing up to a dedicated terabyte external HD. That's all there is, there ain't no more. I expect Acronis to continually reuse this space and never run out. I am not backing up data files. In the event of a disaster, I only need to be able to recover to the most recent system backup. How do I tell True Image 2016 that the concept of "Disk is Full" should never happen.

When you create a backup task, you may set limits for the backup set: by age, number of backups, storage space, etc.

That seems reasonable; I'll try to change my backup settings, though it's hard to believe that I wasn't fully aware of the issue when I first installed Acronis.

Check out the many user guides and tutorials in the left margin of this forum. ATI is a powerful product with many options, so you should expect to spend some time to learn how best to use it for your needs.
