  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.

    Windows 10 "last backup date"

    • Has the information changed on your PC since the last file history backup?
      • There are changes, When I checked the destination drive updated data seems to be there, and backup size increases
      • The date of last backup reported by backup & file history stop changing (21 of March)
    • Is file history full? It may require all but the latest version cleaning up.
      • There is quota, I regularly clean the oldest versions from history
    • Have you turned off file history & turned it back on?
      • I tried now - no change
    • Have you run a manual file history backup?
      • I tried now - no change

    File History restart

    Hi Jim,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.



    To change the backup drive for File History, the current process should be stopped. I suggest you to try the steps listed below to stop file history on an older drive and restart it on a new drive:



    Change File History backup drive:

    • Open Settings and navigate to Update & Security > Backup.
    • Click on More Options, scroll down to locate
      Backup to a different drive section, and choose Stop Using Drive.
    • Plug in the new storage drive, navigate to Settings > Update & Security > Backup,
      and choose Add a Drive.
    • Restart File History and configure it by referring to the article

      File History in Windows
      .


    Hope it helps.

    Regards,
