History question

  1. #11


    I just checked now, a document saved yesterday does NOT show up in history.
    I did NOT change anything since last week, so definitively history in my computer is messed up.
    Also I noticed that I now see TWO copies of all documents, while last week I was seeing only ONE copy (according to my setup)
    So what shall I do to have a reliable history backup?
    Thank you

    I'm not quite sure why this is happening with your back ups. Maybe another member can provide some insight. If all fails there are quite a few good Back Up softwares, one of my favourites being ACRONIS True Image, works flawless and recommended by many.
    Google it and give it a shot!

Solved File History. in Performance & Maintenance
Hi, I've turned File History on using the default setting & requesting daily updates. I've selected my External Drive and all is working as it should. However the bit I can't grasp concerns the method of back-up. Is it incremental or a complete new back-up each day? Secondly, I've allowed the...
