    Drive Choice For File History

    Have 3 drives installed. Two SSD's (Win7 on one and Win8Pro on the other) and a Seagate 1TB. The only choice that shows for File History location is the Win7 disk. Why can I not choose the Seagate 1TB drive? Suggestions welcomed.Select drive for File History.PNG

    Are folders in the 1TB drive included in Libraries? It seems that those won't be usable.

    You might have to create a new partition in the large HD that is not included in the libraries to use for the file history backups. Did you try the Select Drives link to the left?

    Was able to solve the problem with this work-around. I shared the TB drive and added it as a network connection. Now when I choose Select Drive I have the TB as an option.

    Sorry for the delay in responding to your suggestions (side tracked with other issues). Thanks again @ruirib & @Medico.
