    Is ther a way to tweek File History?

    Because I plan to use more than one computer, I'd like to keep my user files on a flash drive but back them up to a logical partition on my hard drive. File History sounded great for this, but when I went to set it up, it didn't give D:\ (my hard drive logical partition) as an option for the destination. I'm also not sure if files on my flash would be backed up when I save-and-replace or delete them. Is there a way to get what I want?

    To answer your question, you must use a separate drive for storage. Either a second drive, external, or network. You cannot use the drive windows is physically installed on.
