  2. Unable to create File History backup with error: "File History doesn’t recognise this drive" on Windows 10

    Hi Brain,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about creating a File History backup on your drive, we will help you with this issue.

    This issue might have occurred because the drive is not detected as a backup drive on Windows 10.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • Where have you tried to create the backup when you say: "old windows 7 backup and restore is still on the computer"?
    • What is the complete error message/ error code of this issue?
    • Were you able to see all the files and folders on your computer before creating the backup?

    I suggest you to refer to the Microsoft article about: What if something
    goes wrong in File History?
    and check if it helps.

    (Applies to Windows 10 as well)

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue and required information, we will be happy to help you further.

    File History

    Hi Anastasia,

    File History creates a backup of your files automatically and stores the backup on an external hard drive. It might be disconnected for too long that may cause interruption. To address your inquiry, we suggest that you follow the steps in this
    article on how to reconnect your File History drive.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
