Windows 7 Backup Disk Full

What happens when a Windows 7 backup disk is full? I've been trying to find documentation on the issue without success. Does Windows 7 automatically delete the oldest backup files to free up space or does it force you manually pick and choose which files to delete?

The problem may be your backup scheme. Check out what is being backed up. Many programs will backup all the browsers caches and Windows temps files and junk that isn't needed. Make a setup that will run ccleaner before backing up. Also, use incremental backups. You will use much less space.
