Reconnect your File History drive

Applies to: Windows 10

  • You’ll see this message if your File History drive has been disconnected for too long. If you’re backing up to an external drive (like a USB drive), make sure it’s connected to your PC. If you’re backing up to a network location, go to Settings  > Update & security  > Backup and reselect the network.

  • After you’re reconnected, wait for the next scheduled backup or start a backup manually by selecting Settings  > Update & security  > Backup > More options > Back up now.
