    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

    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
