    Pc wants to boot from my usb that holds my File History


    Whenever I restart my desktop computer with a usb thumb drive plugged in I get the following: "An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system". My File History is saved to a usb so I want to be able to always have it plugged in.

    The boot order in bios looks like the below. Can someone advise on what the recommended boot order and other settings (disable & enable settings) should be. Thank you.

    Boot Menu Type <normal>
    Boot Device Priority <optical drives>
    <hard disk drives>
    <removable drives>
    <network>
    Hard Drive Order PO: Hitachi
    Optical Drive Order PE: Atapi
    Removable Drive Order Multi Flash Reader 1.00
    Boot to Optical Devices enable
    boot to removable devices enable
    boot to network enable
    Usb boot enable
    boot usb devices first disable
    uef1 boot disable

    :)

  2. File History of files on external USB harddisk drive

    Hi,

    I have a external harddisk connected to my pc using USB. This drive contains personal files which I want to add to file history. I simply want that everytime I connect my external harddrive to my pc, that file history backs up the files on it to a location
    on the network. How do I do that?

    * I have file history working for files on an internal harddrive

    * I did add my external harddrive to the Documents library

    * I tried adding the folder on the external harddrive using the "Add a folder" using the windows 10 settings. But the folder seems to dissappear from the list after a while.

    Another detail: the disk is encrypted using DiskCryptor. Everytime I connect the drive windows says it has to be formatted. When I mount the drive by providing the key to DiskCryptor the drive becomes a valid one.

    How can I restore files from backup on a different pc?.

    Did you find the answer to this? I'm having a similar problem. My computer crashed. I had my File History on another drive. Now that I have a new PC I want to restore from File History but can't seem to see the original File History files to restore.

    Used to see that type problem with CD drives when a disc was left in it. Kinda weird but one might reformat the Thumb drive as NTFS as that sometimes makes them unbootable but still read/write capable in Windows. But be sure to first save the data elsewhere then copy it back.
