    Admin and user profiles recognize different drives for backup.


    I'd like a choice where I can use file history for both Admin and user. But they recognize different drives for that purpose. Shouldn't they recognize all of them? Both accounts? Here's a screenshot of what I have attached. This seems strange. (I already do Macrium backups. I want a separate continuous backup for files only, not settings, apps &.)

    Hello pxfragonard,

    I assume that you are talking about the Windows built-in backup?
    I have never really got on with the Windows built-in backup [Vista, Win 7, win 10] because of the limitations for me etc.
    I use AOMEI Backupper [FREE], and I have done for a few years now. It is easy to use and FREE.

    I hope this helps!

    For photos backup to Google photos which is free and will do oit on its own if you install backup and sync from Google or use onedrive

    No, it doesn't. It doesn't even address the problem I posted. I do image backups on Macrium. But I want to use the File History to save documents and other files to a different drive.
