    File history has quit working


    I have my File History set for every 12 hours, and keep for 1 month, it has been working since June or July, so I check it once a week to verify that it's still working. It stopped last week, right after I checked it. All the settings are the same, any ideas?

    File History (FH) is prone to problems. My usual fix is :

    • Stop FH
    • Delete the FH config files at C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\FileHistory\Configuration
    • Restart FH and select to use the same backup drive as before

    Thanks Steve sounds promising, I'll give it a try.
