  2. File History Does Not Backup Recycle Bin in Win 10

    I want File History to backup the Recycle Bin. In fact, I SEEM to recollect it used to do that. What I have done:

    The Recycle Bin icon is on the desktop.

    On Folder View, I have checked "Show hidden folders."

    File History is set to, and does backup, other folders on the desktop.

    It does not appear as a folder that can be added to File History Backup, under the File History Settings.

  3. SD Card don't sdhow up as File History Drive

    My SD card does not whos up in the list of drives to select for File History Backup. It is formatted as an NTFS drive and inserted into a micro SD card slot of my Kangaroo Mobile Desktop PC.

    Q1: Why does not Windows 10 list my SD card as a File History backup drive to use?

    Q2: What constraints does Windows 10 apply to select available File History Drives?

    Q3: IS there a way to configure (e.g. Format a suitable file system) my SD card to have Windows 10 use it for File History Backup?

    Thanks!
