    When replacing a damaged external hard drive

    Damaged my external hard drive that I use to make backups of my File History. When connecting a new drive will it capture all the files or just where I left off when using my old drive? Using Windows 10 anniversary. Thanks

    I guess it will only copy the current version of your files since the older versions are only stored within File History. Can you extract the old file history folder from the damaged drive? If so you could copy it to the new drive and see if FH will recognise and add to the existing backup.
