Working with a new computer and on installing setting up Elements Photo 2021
I have moved pictures from an old computer but had to start from new.
I have done a back up manually but on leaving the Organizer I am promted to back up. However I get the erorror message "System has not enough space. Back up can not be performed". I do believe I have plenty of space, but where does the progra try to put the back up? Which setting is deciding? Where and why does it not find space?

Your description shows clearly that the kind of backup which is prompted when you exit the organizer is the quick 'backup structure' introduced in PSE2021.
Normally, that process starts with a 'repair' checking of the database followed by the copy of your catalog folder (minus the bulky thumbnail cache) on a default location on your C : drive, on ProgramData/Adobe/Elements Organiser/Catalogs/_Autobackup_
The size of this backup should be the size of your catalog folder minus the size of the cache: a very small size to be stored on C : So, the message makes no sense in your case.
Maybe someone may have another explanation. In the meantime, I suggest to ignore the prompt and choose the option to 'skip this time'. If you want to have 'structure backups = catalog only backups', it's easy and fast to copy the catalog folder where you want.
