    File history no documents

    I completed a file history backup. FH is supposed to backup the Library, and documents folder is in Library. But it does not contain documents folder, music nor videos.
    I went in libraries and did restore libraries. But no luck.

    After the completion, clicked RUN again and they are all there now.
    I don't know how much I can trust it.
