    Sounds like you're backing up to your home directory which doesn't have the space for it.
    If you have another directory where you can save backups, just use it, otherwise you may need to have another hard drive added. A seperate hard drive for backups is better anyway.

    Hi,

    I actually I am storing in /backup dir not in home. Where do you people normally store.


    Thanks

    A second harddrive dedicated for backup purposes only.

    Your backup directory must be too small then. It is best to use a seperate hard drive for backups because if the main hard drive ever quits, backups there would be useless.
