    File history problem


    How to solve the problem to turn on the file history.
    It is saying that in yellow box''No usable drive was found. We recommend that you use an external drive for File History. Connect a drive and refresh this page, or use a network location.''
    So what can i do ? I don't want to use a network location ?

    I'm afraid that you cannot use the C: drive to save file history to since that is the Windows drive.

    You will need to use either a separate internal hard drive, external hard drive (ex: USB), or a network drive.

    You cannot turn on File History until after you select a drive. The tutorial link I posted above will show you how to select a drive when you have one available to use with File History.

    Click on link in post #2 for tutorial.

    File History will save the files in a "File History" folder on the drive selected to be used for File History.
