    issue with backup options Windows 10

    Hi David,

    I will certainly help with the issue you are facing with backup option.

    To assist you better, kindly provide the information:


    • How exactly are you trying to perform back up? Is it from the Backup and Restore (Windows 7) or File History?

    • Which drive have you selected to back up? Is it an external drive or a network drive or a local drive of the system?

    • When you say 'only allows me to do another backup with the same options', which options are you referring to?

    • Are you unable to select a different drive for a backup from the backup destination list?
    If you are using a Backup and Restore (Windows 7) option then, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Type backup and restore in the search bar and press enter.

    • Click on setup backup option.

    • Click on refresh button to check if the drives are visible in the
      backup destination list.

    • Choose the drive which you want to back up and click on
      next.
    If you are trying to use file history I suggest you to un-plug it and restart your computer. Re-plug the external drive and check if the file history options are available.

    Please get back to us with the information to assist you further.

    Thank you.

    Windows 10 Backup - No "Add a Drive" option

    Thanks for the update. We recommend turning On the File History option in Control Panel and see if it helps with the issue. Follow these steps:

    • Press Windows key + I on your keyboard to open Windows Settings.
    • Click Update & Security, and then click Backup.
    • Under Add a drive, click More options.
    • Click See advanced settings to open File History.
    • Click Turn On button, go back to Backup in the
      Windows Settings and try to do a backup again.

    Let us know if the issue gets resolved.

    Windows Setting Freeze when opening Backup Option

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
