I have one windows backup job that is going to a usb external drive.  its a terabyte in size and now it is full.  The backup drive has two folders.

System Volume Information
Windowsbackupimage

system volume information is the huge one.
there are these sid's it looks like and each one of them measure between 5 and 15 gigabytes.
there are 80 recovery points with one each daily.  Whats the best way to make room for more backups to complete.  also, is there an option for windows backup up to automatically delete the oldest files for room for the newest.
