Windows 10: File History with 2 external HDDs Solved

    File History with 2 external HDDs


    I currently do File History with 1 external HDD as everyone else does. I have a spare external HDD that is just gathering dust. I wonder if I could do File History with 2 external HDDs? Will I run into trouble if I did?

    The idea is that I could do File History with the 2 external HDDs on alternate days, so if the internal HDD and one external HDD happen to die on the same day (very, very unlikely, I know) I lose just one day of backup at the most.

    Answering my own question: I pooled the 2 external HDDs in a single Storage Space in a 2-way mirror configuration for data resiliency. I then use the single Storage Space for File History. Be aware though that the 2 HDDs are reformatted when the Storage Space is created. I am happy with the solution sofar
