You can limit the backups using parameters in the backup definition file. What are the dates on the backups? Are they all the same date or are the dates consistent with your schedule? Do you have backups scheduled to occur on a regular basis (daily, weekly, etc.)? Your post did not give enough information for me to know whether there is a problem or what the problem is.
If you are scheduling backups to run on a regular basis but NOT deleting older backups, then your above situation is to be expected. If you have multiple full backups on the same day, but you do not have that scheduled or did not do that manually - then that would be a problem.
On the 2nd page of the backup definition files, step 3 (retention rules) allows you to specify how many full backups to retain. If the number of full backups exceed this number, older backups will be automatically deleted the next time a full backup runs.
