    Is this Tutorial "Reset File History to Default in Window" still good

    Reset File History to Default in Windows 10 Backup Restore Tutorials

    My File History is a complete and total mess, leading to Search being unusable. I'd like to start over to see if I can fix it before I start posting my tale of woe.

    EDIT: I think my problem may be my search index. Should File History be in there in Indexing options?

    Hi there. Yes, your File Explorer may be faulting. Do you have a restore point to change back to? If not, you may want to try this: Run Startup Repair in Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials

    It seems my problem with Search was due to Indexing, not File History.

    I deleted and rebuilt the Index, and everything seems to be OK for now. At this point in time the Index is "off" should it be off? It's set on Delayed Start.

    If you mean the "Windows Search" service, then it's set to "Automatic (Delated Startup)" and not running by default.
