  4. Skipped Files

    The Backup completed but some files were skipped

    Hi,

    Thank you for using Windows 10.

    We regret for the inconvenience. I would like to inform you that if you are trying to backup a file which is on the drive where the backup is being created, it will skip those files.

    You may check in libraries if your personal files which you have already uninstalled are present there. If it’s there, you may delete those files & try to run the backup again.

    You may also try the following steps and check if that helps:

    • Restore default storage locations on all folders (i.e. Pictures, Documents, Downloads, Favorites, Searches etc...)
    • Rename the folder in explorer to match the default folder.
    • Restore the default libraries and run the back up.

    Let us know the updated status and we'll be happy to assist.
