    Hello mobile1,

    The notification is letting you know that the drive you selected to save your File History on is not connected, and needs to be connected to be able to save your File History on.

    If you don't want to use File History, then you can turn off File History to stop this notification.

    If you do want to use File History, then you will need to either leave the drive connected or select a new drive to save to.
