If you have that many errored_backups something is wrong. The backup script will only keep 14 most recent backups but only if the current backup didn't error out. Sounds like the backup has had problems for some time. Check the /var/log/$hostname_myth_mtc.log. The restore dir never gets cleaned up by the system so if you don't need dirs in there delete them manually.
