Windows 10: Restore Folders

    Restore Folders

    When I select "Restore personal files" under Control Panel>System and Security>File History, the only files available are those in my Documents folder. The Music, Videos, Pictures and Downloads folders do not appear. I believe these are supposed to be backed up by default. Does anyone know what's going on?

    Hello and welcome to the TenForums!

    Go into settings, update & security and select Backup. Under File History you can select More options and then check all the folders that are being backed up and add any that are missing.
