Windows 10: Backup single file in folder

    Backup single file in folder


    Is there any simple way, not involving 3rd party software to get File History to backup a single file in a folder?

    I'm trying to backup the Google Chrome bookmarks file, the file itself is about 1k but it's in a folder with 1Gb of files and I don't need to backup any of the others.

    Thanks in advance.

    Not worth install extra software to do this. Just copy the file to a flash drive and manually update every month by export in the bookmarks in Chrome to a importable file.

    Provided the destination is accessible (e.g. not an unplugged USB drive), you could write a small script file and create a schedule task to execute the script if you wish to automate it.

    I save my Google bookmarks file on Onedrive every month so I can share it across all my PCs. I know you can synch bookmarks in Google but I prefer to control my own backups.

    I have a batch file that I run that backs up all my data including the Chrome bookmarks.
    This could suit the OP. Simply double click and it will copy all files to a USB drive.

    Thanks guys. I'm guessing from the replies that it confirms what I thought originally that there is no way to do this using File History directly.
