It is something that you have to decide.  Nobody knows enough about your machine to tell you what to delete.

Backup Exec needs some space to store the database and logfiles.

If you have installed BE on the C-drive, it can be worth to move it to another partition with more available space.

If this response answers your concern, please mark it as a "solution"

I found the problem, there was logs  getting generated which makes C drive full.

CraigV's picture can move the logs and catalogs to another drive by following the TN below:
