    I cannot offer any help, but I can tell my (short) story.

    I used One Drive a couple of years ago. It was just for saving a small number of very important files.

    But the uploads failed VERY frequently on files larger than 20 MB. (Smaller files did not seem to fail.)

    So I dropped One Drive and went to Google Drive. This one is flawless. I've never had a lick of trouble with it.
    Thank you for this info... I will look into Google DriveK

    One of my external drives is almost full
    again and I've not been adding anything
    to it.

    I found a folder that reads "FileHistory"

    Folder inside: Data

    in it are two folders:
    $0F - 38.32 MB and there are 45 folders
    and all have things like this inside
    3463 (2016_11_28 18_07_09 UTC).sql
    Most of these were created Nov 28 2016

    C contains 44.4 GB of stuffs... looks like
    random things from C drive

    I don't know if it's OK to delete this stuffs or
    not Th

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Have a look in the Settings App
    Updates & Recovery
    and then the Backup option

    It sounds like the Backup using File History is turned on and is using your external drive for this

    With this option on it keeps various backups of all your files, incase you need to get older versions back

    In the left lower corner type settings > view left pane and click on backup > view backup and click on advanced options > left pane under related settings click on > see advanced settings > keep a history of your files > is file history on? if so where are files being saved?
