    File History File Backup and Scheduling Issues


    I just discovered File History is not backing up some OneDrive local folders. I've checked the folders can be accessed OK using Explorer. What should I check to ensure File History backs up all the folders? Note I use scheduled Reflect backups mainly and File History is only needed for recent files.

    File History is also set to backup every 3 hours but the last backup was done 3 days ago despite the PC being on every day for 3 hours. Why isn't it backing up using the defined schedule?
