    File backup windows 10 from multiple drives


    I am using the system to backup my file history which is currently only backing up only my "C" drive.
    Is there any way to use this backup to backup my files from other drives on my system at the same time?

    Create New Library in Windows 10

    I believe if you create a new library, add the folders you want to be backed up to the new library, then Windows file history will include those folders. I don't use file history backup in Windows, so I am guessing here.

    Actually, this article seems to suggest you have to add the folders to one of the specific libraries mentioned:

    I believe that is out of date - you can add any folder on any drive (or a complete drive I think) under backup options. Martin

    OK: a video seems OTT, so:

    Did I get the right order? I have real trouble working with multiple attachments!

    Thank you, @mngerhold, that is awesome! Maybe I didn't see that option because I never actually set up a drive to hold file history backup.
