What are your SLAs for RTO and RPO? If you do not have SLAs for these items you are most likely either using more money than your business wants you to, or you are risking business continuity by not being able to recover essential data.

Dealing with lack of disk space for backups may be this morning's problem, but you really need to deal with aligning your SLAs with what can be delivered.

If your business is happy to have 12 hours data loss on SharePoint, then there is no need for these databases to ever have been in Full recovery mode.

If your business reckons it will cost $1m for every minute of data lost in a recovery, then you need to tell your boss he is currently exposed for $720m of costs until he can get you $20k more disk space. It should get their attention.
