Well you have now the following structure in increasing time mode
… lots...
Full Set

The last Full set is new and will significantly increase your cache.  This will 
stabilize once you get 3 Full backups and then when that very long backup chain 
of incrementals is removed it will go to some steady state.

Removing the intermediate incrementals is up to you.  I haven’t tried that 
option of remove-all-inc-of-but-n-full but it will remove some of the 
incrementals if that is acceptable it will of course reduce the cache size.
