    My File History USB is nearly full - what should I do now?


    I created my File History USB in May 2019. It's permanently plugged into my (EMy File History USB is nearly full - what should I do now? :) Drive and now has 2.01GB free, of 28.9GB.


    As it was completely new to me at the time - it was recommended by an expert here - I have several questions and would appreciate your help please:


    (1) I can't remember how often it takes the History - how do I find that please


    (2) Is Monthly intervals the recommended one?


    (3) How do I find when the History was last taken?


    (4) How much space is used when it takes the History?


    (5) Is it best to insert a new USB and start again? Bing says to go to Settings > Update & Recovery > File History, then toggle the File History option to ON. Is this correct?


    (6) When the new USB has say two months' history, should I wipe the old USB clean (reformat) for future use?


    Looking forward to your advice.


    PS I hope I've used the correct Topics etc below.

    :)
