Are the BKF files actually larger than 4GB on disk?
As far as the amount of disk space to reserver for backup files: If you have a dedicated volume for your B2D device, just leave it at the default of no limit, and BackupExec will fill the volume
If you need to place a B2D folder on a volume with other data on it, then you can reserve space for those files by using the Advancedc Option

The bkf files on disk are up to 25GB in size which seems ok as I have set the limit at 25GB.
I would like to restrict the amount of disk space used by these files on disk but using the Advanced tab to configure settings for the amount of disk space there is no option for reserving disk space. The only option on the ASdvanced Tab to do with disk space is the Low Disk space threshold.

That's the option that you need to use
From the Admin Guide page 414
Check Low disk space threshold to prevent Backup Exec from writing a job to the backup-to-disk folder when the volume reaches the threshold you specify.
The low disk space threshold is the amount of free space on the drive at which Backup Exec suspends backup operations to the backup-to-disk folder. When the volume’s capacity reaches this threshold, Backup Exec places current jobs on hold until disk space is available. The backup-to-disk status displays Low Disk Space. You must free some disk space to allow job submission to resume.
(Disk Space Reserve was the terminology used in v11 |8^) )
