Question about NTI Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Toshiba Nti EZ backup drive is filling up. It keeps creating backups but doesn't delete old backups or images. I can no longer back anything up because the drive is almost full. There are warnings that I should not modify or delete any files so I am stumped. This is a 1Tb drive and in 3 weeks it filled up. Not sure how to proceed?

I am using NTI Backup Now EZ 7 on Windows 10. Where is the 'override old backups' option?

The "override old backups" option is located in the "Settings" tab of the NTI Backup Now EZ 7 application. This option allows you to choose whether or not to overwrite existing backups with new ones. If you have this option enabled, your backups will be overwritten each time you run a new backup. If you disable this option, your backups will be kept separate.

You have an issue - if my understanding is correct ' you are trying to restore your files, programs etc., to a new computer.

Backups are meant to restore the files and windows operating system etc. on the same computer the backup was created from. If you bought a new computer, it cannot do any restoration of the backup file from the hard drive.

if this is not the case, you need to provide more information for anyone to help.

Delete unwanted NTI backups.

  1. Open the windows explorer and navigate to where the backups are.
  2. Switch your view to details
  3. See which backups are the newest, don't delete them
  4. Delete the rest.
  5. Configure the Backup process to make fewer backups, like once per month, or one full, then several incremental ones.

Remove unwanted backups

Format Hard drive and them backup only 1 time. In the future, create an additional backup and then after that delete the oldest backup. I backup my system about every month.

I purchased two NTI Backup Now EZ backup drives and have not been able to get either to backup anything off my Sony Vaio E w/Win 7. The system is 500G w/4G RAM.

You will have to contact the company directly. Each system is different enough that you will need their help troubleshooting the issues.

My back up is full

Delete older images or, modify backups by using selective items instead of broad strokes like the whole drive. You could backup with less frequency.

There is the options of doing Differential backup and less Full backups.


Swap out tape or hard drive.

Maybe the restore function only works with the original piece of equipment. Ouch.

You might want to contact the manufacturer of the software to see if they have a fix or solution. Good luck!
