    Why has Backup (local, on XP) completely filled my archive hard drive???

      After maybe 5 weeks of having Backup run live to do full & incremental backups, it has filled my 250GB drive.  The target directories for backing up are about 10GB, and the backup files / folders on the archive drive (which of course are compressed, mind you) take up a whopping 80 GB space.  How the heck does that happen?  It's not like I have it pointed at temp folders w/ transitory files or anything either, just your basic my documents and photos backup use case.  I didn't look exhaustively in the UI, but I didn't see a switch that de facto tells it to keep doing full & distinct backups until no more can be stored.

       

      Thoughts?

       

      Many thanks.
