    Windows 10 v 2004 64 Bit:I have a notification saying that my file history folder has been disconnected
    for too long re- connect it now.When I type file history folder into the search box,it just says Toshiba F.
    Where do I find this to re-connect and is it important?

  2. How to remove folders from File History


    • I had the same problem, and I solved in this way:
      Control Panel -> System and Security-> File History -> Turn off
      Settings -> Update & Security -> Backup -> More options -> Stop using this drive
      Delete the File History folder in your external drive.
      Start using File History again.
      After performing these steps, I can easily add folders to "Excluded Folders" and they remain excluded. I checked in the actual files and folders saved on the external disk, and it works.
      I did not modify the default settings about how often and how long backup is saved, File History is working ok now. So I guess it is important to click "Stop using this drive" in order to reset File History.
      Hope this will be helpful

    How to remove folders from File History


    That does not work. Even though I do the delete from the "Back up these folders" from the list, it still backs it up - and when I close out of Settings and then go back in, the folder re-appears in the list.

    However, Mila's suggestion worked. Is it possible that folders in my Library cannot be removed from the "Back up these folders" list?
