  2. File History on several USB drives

    Using File History to backup user files on W10 PC. Would like to rotate USB drives weekly, but File History does not recognize the new USB drive. Is there a way to have multiple USB drives switched out weekly for off-site storage?

    My USB Backup drive does not show in My Computer window.

    Hi Meran,

    A few possible reason can cause your external drive to not show in File Explorer. To diagnose and fix this issue, we suggest that you check the Disk Management window. To open it, follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the Start button.
    • Select Disk Management.
    • Alternatively, you can search diskmgmt.msc in Cortana.

    Examine the list of drives in the Disk Management window and look for your external drive. Even if it doesn’t show up in File Explorer, it should appear here. If the drive appears, it may not be appearing in File Explorer because it needs to be assigned
    a drive letter. To do this, right-click the partition on the drive in Disk Management and select
    Change Drive Letter and Paths.

    If you don’t see the drive in the Disk Management window at all, we suggest that you try connecting the drive to a different USB port or use a different USB cable. We also recommend that you avoid using USB hubs, and connect the drive directly to your computer.

    If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to post a reply.

    Best USB drive for weekly backups?

    Converting an internal hard drive to an external backup

    IDE can do 133MB/s



    if he can find USB 3.0, go for it. i suggest a new drive + enclosure in one, just because it will be faster and more reliable. the 100GB drive can always be installed as an INTERNAL backup drive in the new machine anyway.
