It comes down to how important your data is, how often you backup, and how quickly you think you'll identify any errors that might require a data recovery or roll-back. If space isn't an issue, save as many as you can.

This post describes my situation so possibly you can help. I've backup to a plug in external drive, 80% free, for years without issue. Main Drive has plenty of free space too. I typically keep 5-6 back ups before deleting the oldest one. After reinstalling ACT this summer after a crash, I started getting the same exception error message .... Xceed.Zip.ZipArchive. But it indicates a path on the internal main C drive Zip File: C:\Users\Robert\AppData\Local\Temp\tmp.3A4D.tmp. The "AppData" folder does not exist when I search it.
Somewhere I found that I needed to delete all temp files in Windows and that seemed to work but after it's hit or miss. There is one small windows temp text file being used by officeclicktorun (2 of those files as well) that can not be deleted. The text file is named after my Act Database but again it's only 339KB so I can't see that being the issue.
I at a loss as I try to back up weekly but it's a 2+ hour backup and the fail is always near the end. Any suggestions?

Try using CCleaner to get rid of temp files. You can get the free version at ccleaner.com

Before backing up, I currently clean up using the Internet Options Tool for the browsing history first with every option checked then use Norton 360 file clean up that wipes out the Windows temp and what is left with the Internet Explorer temp files. I rather not add another program unless you think the 2 clicktorun and 1 text temp file could be causing my issue with the backup.
After the last failed backup attempt I used the Norton clean up and there were over 30,000 temp files that were deleted. None were there before my backup. It seems Act backup is creating all those.

Is that a true folder that stores temp files as I don't see that I have it? Unsure how to search for just folders but when I search %temp% I get 900+ files all over the place. Many in the Act attachments folder, specific customer folders, some "setting content" files like deleting cookies or browsing history that have no location listed. The ones in my Act files folders are in many customer folders & PDF's that I use but the paths If there's other temp file folders hidden that may be where I need to go please advise?
When originally investigated the issue I was getting in the error notice Xceed.FileSystem.DiskFile which still appears on some failed backups. Looking that up pointed to too little disk space but that's not an issue on either the internal C or external F drive. I send the backup to directly to the F drive. During Act backup does it make temp files on the C drive that don't get erased then send it to my external F drive overloading something?
