How to reduce backup size ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just looked at my backup configuration it said the backup size was 210 gigabytes.  So I excluded a folder with videos on it and it said the backup size was now 33 gigabytes.  So I ran backup. But my 1.5 Terabyte hard drive doesn't have more free space now it has less.  It had 66.6 gigabytes now it has 64.5.  Under file:///K:/Windows%20OneCare%20Backup/CHARLES-VISTAPC/
    there are two folders 2009 and 2009 A .  2009 is 548 gigabytes and 2009 A is 175 gigabytes.  2009 A was 172 gigabytes before the last backup.  Do I need them both?  Why are they so much bigger than the data I am backing up? 
    I'm about to run out of space.  How do I clean up backup from files I don't still need?
