Question about Computers & Internet
I attempted to add a large data file to the back up (from another back up). I was successful, but now there isn't enough space to perform daily back ups. There SHOULD be, but the existing back up is not synching. So, I need to delete the hole data set and start from scratch. I've attempted to remove all old back ups, but I'm still getting "not enough room to perform back up" message. Any ideas?
I would reinstall your back-up program and try again. If that doesn't work I would delete all the back-ups and try again. More information could be helpful too(what back-up program, Operation system, etc...)

Normally, 10GB is devoted to programs on a regular size hard drive, therefore, I would suggest that you clear at least this much. How much RAM does your PC have?

SOURCE: Not enough space to back up?
sure..the back ups are compressed files, usually, and though it appears to be a small file, the external drive will allocate the space that it needs. Mac's won't put a file anywhere that there is not enough room. PC's will slice it and spread it around, of course.
I recommend you off load some of those backups to DVD's and keep them for a month or so.
Or get more disk space.

this happen to a cousins laptop the only way to get it to sort out was to format the drive.it sounds harsh but it was the only way.

Testimonial: "Thank you, I will try to format the drive. Hopefully that will do something."
How many directory deep is the file going that you are trying to save? I believe the maximum NTFS file (location + name) of file length can not exceed 256 characters total.
Example: C:\user\documents\file.exe is OK
But: C:\user\documents\folder\folder\folder\folder\folder\this folder name 230 charicters long\file.exe BAD

Connect the device.
Open 'My Computer'.
Double-click the icon for the device, to "open" it.
Click on a file/folder that you wish to delete.
Hold down the SHIFT key, and press the DELETE key.
Click 'Yes' to confirm that you really want to delete, bypassing the 'Recycle Bin'.
