  1. Backup Using File History in Windows 10 Files Skipped. Why?


    When I back up My Folders and Files using File History Option I find that of the Folders added for backup purpose many sub folders and files are skipped. After the backup is over, I checked up my external back up drive. I find that in many cases blank folders are added and all files are skipped or Some files are added and some are skipped. I have made sure the following


    1. PC does not go to sleep during back up.


    2. Files are 'Not Hidden' / Not 'Read only'


    3. I have fill Administrative Rights on these files. I am logging in as Administrator & Owner


    4. These Files are not corrupt


    I have no way to find which file is added & which skipped other than to conduct a file by file comparison. There are no error messages.

    Repeated running of file history backup is also of no use


    Question 1. What is the reason, why these files are skipped? What should I do to ensure that these files not skipped.


    Question 2. Can I add these missing files manually after file by file comparison?

    :)

    Windows 10 Backup using File History Incomplete

    Thanks for the update and providing additional details regarding your concern. Since the issue still persists, we recommend that you run the SFC and DISM commands by following the steps posted by ZigZag3143 (MS -MVP) on this

    link
    . Performing these commands will allow us to verify if there are any file corruptions and automatically correct them.



    One other thing that we advise you to check is the is excluded folder list in File History. Make sure that the folders where the files that don't get backed up are not in the list since File History will skip the locations listed.



    Regards.
