    Ok....

    I just wondered since it was a forum in SEVEN but not in EIGHT. I was hoping the questions about File History and Backup/Restore would all be in 1 place.

    My question was.... why does Microsoft limit the External Drive to 20% for File History.... I would rather be able to use
    ALL of it for File History if I wanted to.... or maybe 50% for FH and 50% for Backup/Restore.

    Thanks!
