    In SSH, visit your /backup/cpbackup folder ( cd /backup/cpbackup )

    You should see 3 folders in here, daily, weekly, and monthly

    Choose one of these sets to delete (i personally delete the monthly's when the /backup gets full).

    I do: cd /backup/cpbackup/monthly

    then: rm -f *.gz

    If /backup is still full, delete the *.gz from weekly.

    the backup structure is checked / recreated everytime cpbackup runs.

    Deleting the *.gz files (the backup sets) does no harm here.

    Yes, ordering a larger drive is another solution... just like another solution is to backup weekly only, or monthly only.

    I would think that using:

    cd /backup/cpbackup/monthly

    rm -f *.gz

    is the most common method used, for an immediate solution to backup being full. After all, monthly's are the oldest and will eventually be replaced anyway.
