    How do I create a File History on/for a new laptop? Win10


    I'm setting up a new Laptop but for the moment I'm keeping my old laptop.


    File History on my old laptop is an invaluable tool so how do I set up File History on this, my new laptop?


    PS Have I put this in the correct Category etc? I can't find any reference to File History anywhere.

    :)

    File History restart

    Hi Jim,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.



    To change the backup drive for File History, the current process should be stopped. I suggest you to try the steps listed below to stop file history on an older drive and restart it on a new drive:



    Change File History backup drive:

    • Open Settings and navigate to Update & Security > Backup.
    • Click on More Options, scroll down to locate
      Backup to a different drive section, and choose Stop Using Drive.
    • Plug in the new storage drive, navigate to Settings > Update & Security > Backup,
      and choose Add a Drive.
    • Restart File History and configure it by referring to the article

      File History in Windows
      .


    Hope it helps.

    Regards,
