File History - can not delete files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm running Windows 8 64 bit, using File History to make backups to an external NAS drive. The File History folder has gotten huge (750 GB), and although I have File History set up to save only the last month's files, there are two years of files in there. When I try to delete some of the files through Windows Explorer, I'm told I need permission from Unix User\nobody. How can I get rid of these older files?

    I'm not an IT pro, so I'll appreciate simple answers if possible...
