  2. How to stop File History on the old drive and start File History on a new drive?

    I use the external drive
    for File History and have a lot of information there. I want to restart the File History process on a new drive and place the previous File History drive off-site.

    Please suggest the steps to stop File History on the old drive and start File History on a new drive.

    Reconnect your File History Drive

    Hi Amma,

    You'll see the message Reconnect your File History drive if you have backed up your files using an external hard drive. However, you have the option not to reconnect your external hard drive if you do not want to use it as your back drive.

    If you don't want to see the message again, please follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the Start menu.
    • Select Control Panel.
    • Go to System and Security.
    • Click on File History.
    • Select Turn Off.

    If you want to back up your files again, you can simply reconnect the said hard drive and follow the steps provided on this
    link.

    Hope this information helps you. In case you need further assistance, don't hesitate to post back.
