Windows 10: "Until space is needed" in File History does not work

    "Until space is needed" in File History does not work


    "Until space is needed" in File History is selected but does not work. There is now 0 space free in the external drive.
    I have repeatedly had this problem.
    By the way, I have seen Microsoft suggest running SFC and DISM to solve this problem. I have run those and they have shown no problems.
    What do I need to do to get the "until space is needed" option to work?

    I find File History is buggy. I now just use the option save versions up to 1 month.
