Windows 10: cloning non-boot backup volume and File History
cloning non-boot backup volume and File History
I have a non-boot volume on a separate internal drive (used to hold various backups) which is too small and I want to upgrade to a larger drive.
I have File History turned on in Windows 10 and the File History is stored on this separate, non-boot volume. I plan to use Macrium Reflect Free to do the cloning.
Do I need to turn off File History in Win 10 before doing the cloning? I don't intend to use the machine while the cloning process takes place, but I don't know if there will be some files that File History backs up without my active use of the computer. If I turn off File History, will I lose all the previous history (that is, does turning off File History delete the existing history or just "freeze it in place"?). Or, can I just keep File History on and go ahead with the cloning?

I've been using Backup & Restore on some Win 7 systems but now I have added a new Win 10 PC (from HP).
