  • Hi Pol,

    From our experience, file history can’t assign specific content, so we couldn’t only backup Document and Picture folder. Meanwhile, if we select System Image Backup, it also back up entire drive.

    Therefore, if it’s convenient to you, I suggest to upgrade to Windows 10, we can choose what we want to back up in this system, like this picture below. Then, create a Schedule to achieve it automatically.

    Hope my clarification is clear.

    Best regards,

    Teemo Tang

  • File history is at best a poor substitute for an actual backup.  I suggest you do a real backup.
