    Backup files that Windows creates with file history


    Does anyone know where I can see the created Backup files that Windows creates with the file history function??
    I defined my file history to backup to NAS, but I can't find the files there and also found no function to see the used share in the settings...

    You should be able to use File Explorer to browse the folder on the NAS share that you selected. You can find out the share that's in use in:
    Settings > Update & Security > Backup > More options.

    But to see what is held in File History and (if necessary) restore the files, see 'Step 3. To Open File History and Restore Previous File Version from Control Panel' in this tutorial.
