several bsod occur and still getting old minidump files

Hello i have had several BSOD however i have a problem regarding the minidump files, it seems that they are stuck in a way and all i get is the first ones that logged a BSOD meaning they are around 2-3 weeks old. No matter what happens they are static and the number of those files is only two, is it the Windows, storing only 2 files or there are some changes that have to be done? please help in order to provide better info regarding the BSOD i get.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start and type in sysdm.cpl and press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box.
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
Click OK twice to exit.
Reboot if you've made changes.
