    Guys,

    When my flash drive model, indicated in the title, fills up with backups, do I have to delete the backups manually, or is this something that Windows 10 will do automatically, removing the oldest backup first to save space? I am using the Back Up and Restore feature built into Windows 10 with the drive.

    Yes, you will need to do the deleting.

    How big is this drive?
    Make and model of this drive may help?

    File History backup now works! If it doesn't, users will need to run Backup manually once, so that the drive can learn the process integrated with your computer. Than, set up your backup preferences, and the flash drive data should now back up according to your schedule, automatically.
