You need to limit the number of recovery points to 1.

However, even with it set to 1 you still need enough space for 2. This is because the new recovery point has to be created before the existing one is removed.

So you need to calculate how large your recovery point is against the size of the backup destination.

Hope that helps.

Are you doing full backups only (independent) or full+incrementals (recovery point set)?

Are you saying that you only want 1 full backup?

But are you doing full only (known as independent) or full+incremental backups? The default is full+inc (known as a recovery point set backup).

If you start creating a new backup job (no need to finish the wizard), you will see what I mean.
