    "Back up using File History" on OneDrive possible?


    When selecting a "drive" for file history which I'd like to enable for the cloud, specifically onedrive. Is there an ability to use this/support this? Or is that not a thing at the moment? I think this would be an amazing feature, since I don't have my external hard drive always plugged in when my computer is on. It doesn't seem to be an option in the "select drive" itself, but is there somewhere else I can enable this?

    :)

  2. Why have File History when there is backup?

    This is not correct. File History backs up files that are found in one of the libraries. You are free to add your own folders to the libraries.

  3. How do I map OneDrive or MEGA as a network drive that I can use with File History backup?

    Well not with file history.

    Use Windows back up and restore(7)

    select to back up personal files, select to manually choose what you want to save

    do the back up to the external location

    Now go to that location for the back up and copy the Back up file and the MediaI.bin file to your one drive folder

    You have now saved a copy and can at any time just click on this back up file without using back up and restore app and the restore of your back up files will begin.
