Hi all. I'm running Win 10 on a good spec laptop.

Also Office 365 Business Premium, single seat. This latter may (?) have some implications for the approach adopted - the OneDrive for Business application it includes is different to the desktop version (it stores the original on the cloud, and if the option is selected synchronises to the file(s) on the PC [which are then available when offline] unlike the desktop version which apparently does the opposite), as are apps like Outlook and Skype.

I write, and am setting up a manuscript management programme named Scrivener - this for obvious reasons requires solid back up arrangements.

It isn't advised to use OneDrive for the working copy of a project that is continuously accessed while working (will put that on the C drive, and if possible save it from there to the cloud also), but it is said to be OK for the zipped backups the programme automatically generates.

The plan is also to take the opportunity to make better use of some of the Win 10 backup and recovery tools. File History apparently won't work with OneDrive, so at this point the thinking is to use an external drive for that. Then to if possible store a systems image on OneDrive.

Two questions:

1. What's a good strategy using Windows 10 backup and recovery tools using OneDrive, the C drive and an external drive as backup locations? Is the above feasible and advisable?

2. Can OneDrive for Business be expected to behave the same as the desktop version of OneDrive in terms of it's ability to interact with programmes like Scrivener's backup? There's good documentation available regarding using Scrivener with the desktop version of OneDrive, but I've no idea if it is likely to apply to the for Business version as well.

All input appreciated!

Thanks
