    Stored files in Hard Drive

    You can use Windows search. Just search for *.* on a desired drive. When list is done just arrange them by size LOL.

    You can do it via command line as well and make an output text file showing files and their sizes (but without arrangement)

    Stored files in Hard Drive

    I'd like to know if there's a way of listing all the files stored in my hardware and arrange them by size, because I want to keep track of what's on my hard drive. Thanks, I hope you answer.

    Cant see External Hard Drive Back up Option in Windows 11

    Hi Team, I'm new to Windows 11.

    I'm trying to set up regular, scheduled back up of my files to my external hard drive, (worked really well in Windows 10) but I cant see External Hard Drive Back up Option in Windows 11/Settings/Accounts/Windows Back Up.

    I want to back up to my hard drive, NOT the cloud.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Kind Regards

    Richard N.
