    File History Error 200 Every 2 Days?


    I get the FH history error 200 every 2 to 3 days without fail which according to Event Viewer says this
    "Unable to start a backup cycle for configuration C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\FileHistory\Configuration\Config"
    I fix it by stopping FH using my current drive but that often gets a 0x80070020 error which forces me to recover a old hard drive image backup. If not I am able to fix it by deleting the configuration files (which are in use if I can't stop windows using my current drive) and loose all my backups and have to start again. It's getting very frustrating loosing my backups without fail to the same error with no solution in sight. I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64bit version 20H2. Any help would be hugely appreciated!

    :)

    I'll keep it in mind thanks! But when I try stopping File History it gives me the error but doing it via the advanced settings for File History seems to have more luck so might be the way to go. Hopefully I don't get any error 200 sometime soon File History Error 200 Every 2 Days? :)

    File History Error 200 Every 2 Days?

    Problem is for me if I try to delete the config files it says some of them are in use, and stopping drive gives me the 0x80070020 error. Is it just Config1 and Config2 you delete? Or all the files in the config folder?
