Hey Guys,

I used file history on 8 but since 8.1 upgrade It has stopped backing up my Work Folder or my SkyDrive folder/library any ideas how to add these folders to File History?

Regards

Hi Kemical dude,

Nice to see that you are still active here :)

I have the file history setup OK apart from it wont backup the local copy of my SkyDrive, even after I add it as a library item. I think I read somewhere that MS had deliberately stopped it :-( but was hoping it was a vicious rumour, appears not.

Not used it myself but does this page offer anything in the way of help?

I don't use SkyDrive either, but I get the impression the operation has been changed and automatically backs up whatever during the syncing operation. Since in appears Exploer.exe seems to maintain an open internet connection, possibly the files are backed up if they are included in your basic settings, whatever they might be.
