Part 2. Toolkit reports that the drive is full – Make Use of Storage Properly

Some people complain that the Toolkit reports the drive is full on Seagate backup drive. In this case, it’s the right time to delete old backup files. All the backup files are at F:\Toolkit\Backup\ComputerName (F represents the letter for your drive).

Next, my suggest is you need to delete a backup plan

1. On the Main Menu, click Backup.

2. Click the "..."icon on the device with the Backup plan you want to delete.

3. Click DELETE.

You can also remove old backup files created with the above-deleted backup plan by selecting the checkbox next to Delete all files backed up by the device and clicking DELETE. It’s not enough to delete a backup plan. After then, you must still want to back up important files.

Backing up important files is a must, but I do not suggest you do the backup manually. You can use a professional tool, like iBeesoft Dbackup to do the backup task. It’s intelligently and efficiently by offering you the option of scheduling backup. In this case, you never need to do it manually.
