Windows 10: File History fails, where can I find detailed error messages?
File History fails, where can I find detailed error messages HELP!!!?
I have tried to user "File history" to make backups of my files on D: (not of the "official" Windows libraries) to an USB HD. I'm on Windows 10, latest update (anniversary edition), 64 bits.
I know that the error messages appear only in the event logs of Windows and I look there for them.
First I had many errors because of too long paths (>259 characters). I spend hours to correct everything, so now it should be OK but the backup still crashes when I include some directories.
Error in the event log: 201, something like "Impossible to analyse the changes...". No other error. And nothing is backed up.
As this happens only when I include some directories, I suppose it has to do with specific files - but which ones? How can I find out which file causes the problem? Does "File History" save more detailed informations somewhere?

I can't believe it... nobody know where the "File history" saves its log files?
Or is it even worse that I thought, this scrappy piece of software not only doesn't display, but also doesn't even records why it stops?
You need to Event Viewer. Open up "Applications and system Logs" -> "Microsoft" -> "Windows" -> "File-History Core" and/or "File-History Engine". They each have a single log. Your errors should be noted there.
I already looked there, the error 201 comes and nothing else.
Is there any place where "File History" saves a real log?
Is there a way to delete all messages in the deleted file in Outlook
