    File History File Backup and Scheduling Issues


    I just discovered File History is not backing up some OneDrive local folders. I've checked the folders can be accessed OK using Explorer. What should I check to ensure File History backs up all the folders? Note I use scheduled Reflect backups mainly and File History is only needed for recent files.

    File History is also set to backup every 3 hours but the last backup was done 3 days ago despite the PC being on every day for 3 hours. Why isn't it backing up using the defined schedule?

    :)

  2. Schedule time for File History backups?

    I have 'File History' scheduled for 'Daily'. Please elaborate on when this scheduled 'Daily' File History backup runs. Can I control the schedule time? Also, I normally keep my File History backup drive disconnected. Does File History resume when I
    plug the drive back in. If not, why not?

    Schedule time for File History backups?

    The Windows Backup for files and system image has a schedule that allows me to run this once a week at a certain time. All well and good.

    The File History backup only seems to have a schedule that allows me to run this daily BUT does not appear to allow me to schedule what time of day I want the backup to run.

    Is there a way to schedule the time to run a DAILY File History backup?
