    Hello alkaufmann,

    This basically means that the drive you have selected to save your File History to is not available, and it's wanting you to connect it so it can save your File History.

    If you want to use File History, then you'll just need to connect the drive or select another available drive to stop this message.

    If you don't want to use File History, then turning off File History will stop this.

    Thanks for pointing me into the right direction, for some reason Windows was turned on to backup every so often to a SSD drive it did not like for some reason. I have a third party program to backup everything, so I know I did not turn it on. I formatted that SSD drive and turned the Windows backup off. Seems ok now, it has stopped asking for a drive to be re-connected.

What exactly does this mean and which files are being saved/copied. Can they be deleted if they are copies, and where are they stored. This may seem a dumb question, but I would not ask if I could find the solution myself. 73233
