    Skipped file during backup

    I took your advice and now use Win 10 backup. I'm not a gamer so basically just use for e-mail, religious studies, browsing, saving pictures, downloading books and use an USB jump drive for back up. I did noticed that when I had used Win 7 back up I had
    over 49 Gigs of back up, but with Win 10 I have just under 7 Gigs? I don't get skipped files when backing up with Win 10. Thanks for taking time to answer my question.

    Skipped file during backup

    During a backup on my Win 10 desktop (I still use win 7 backup) auto backup always fails and I must select 'Back up now' to redo.... I continually get the same message in Notepad: “Back up skipped backing up (\\ file name) as it is not on local machine.”....
    I can't find out what/were/why this file is being called for during backup? If I could find it, I would just delete it. Maybe someone could walk me through the steps or I could write a new file and give it the same name? I looked at the answers given by the
    community to others with similar problems but they just left me more confused. At 80 I need more hand holding, sorry.
