    Backup fails to backup files that are in a folder synchronized with OneDrive


    Windows Backup seems to be working but it simply skips all files that are in a folder that synchronizes with OneDrive. All other files are backed up normally. I have reproduced this problem in three different laptops (all Windows 10 and latest Windows version). This problem began after a relatively recent Windows update.


    Any ideas on what might be going on and how to fix this?

    :)

  2. Automatically backup OneDrive Files?

    Hi,

    I would suggest you to use EaseUS Todo Backup.

    After downloading this Kindly follow follow below mentioned steps, i am hopeful that your issue will be resolves by doing this.

    *Launch EaseUS's free backup software and choose "File Backup" option to back up files from your computer or other devices to OneDrive.

    *Select the files or folders you want to back up. Then click "Destination" to select the Cloud Storage > Add Cloud storage service so that you can save your files to OneDrive.

    *Click "Schedule" option to open the Backup Scheme window, here you can create a scheduled backup plan to back up files daily, weekly, monthly or upon an event. For example, you can set at 5 pm, then it will automatically back up these files every day at 5
    pm.

    *Click "Proceed" to automatically back up files to OneDrive.

    You are Done

    Please let me know, if that helps.

    Kind Regards:

  3. Automatically backup OneDrive Files?

    Is there a way to use Windows 10 File History utility to automatically backup my files that are already on OneDrive? I can add the folders in the File History utility, but when the backup is performed, the files are not actually saved.

    I know that most people backup files to OneDrive, but I want to make sure that I have automatically saved offline versions as well just in case I delete something by accident, or am hit with ransomware. Without an offline copy, the ransomware will be able
    to make my automatically synchronized files useless as well.

    I know that I can manually download the files, but the ability to keep updated versions is preferable.

    Use File History to Backup OneDrive Content

    Technical Level : Intermediate

    Summary

    This article details how to backup OneDrive content to another storage medium using the built-in Windows backup tool File History. For more details about File History, read this page:

    Restore files or folders using File History

    This is valid on Windows 10 and Windows 8.1.

    Details

    OneDrive is a great tool for syncing and sharing files via Microsoft accounts, however, it's a syncing tool first and files can be permanently deleted. A good practice is to use File History in conjunction with OneDrive so any changes are automatically backed
    up to a different location without fear of files being deleted.

    Setup OneDrive to Sync all Critical Files Worthy of Backup

    Before you can backup anything in OneDrive using File History, configure it so OneDrive syncs everything to your computer:

    • (Windows 10 and Windows 7) Choose the files and folders you want to sync to your computer
    • (Windows 8.1) Choose the folders and files you want to "Make Available Offline"
    Wait for OneDrive to finish syncing all content before continuing to the next step.

    Setup a Drive for File History

    After you configure OneDrive to sync the content you need, setup a drive to use File History:

    Set up a drive for File History

    Large, slow drives are ideal for File History, whether they're inside of the computer or connected via a USB on the outside. When you setup File History it should automatically backup all Library folders, OneDrive folders, and other
    common Windows folders. If you don't see your OneDrive folders, manually add them.

    Once configured, File History will run on the frequency you chose and will backup your OneDrive files if there are changes; File History uses a more intelligent backup process and will only backup if it detects changes. If a file
    changes frequently, you'll see many versions, possibly a version every time File History runs, otherwise, you may see the original version if it never changes.

    If you lose a file and need to restore it, follow these instructions to restore a file from File History:
