Windows 10 - File History - Can I setup a Folder upon a NAS drive to backup to a local drive ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I've been trying to add a NAS drive folder to the File History settings upon my Windows 10 PC. I've got full access to the NAS folder, so don't understand why I'm seeing an error code - 0x80070032. This is on a freshly rebuilt PC without a Virus Scanner installed, and no fancy non-Microsoft Applications installed. I've run the "sfc /scannow" command, though it doesn't appear to help. Any suggestions ? Or is it simply not possible to add File History to a non-local drive ?

    Thanks in advance...

  • Hi EnglishmanInJapan,

    "0x80070032" usually means "The request is not supported".
    Is it available to setup a backup to the external drive?

    As far as I know, the file history will only backup the personal files stored in libraries, desktop, favorites and contacts folders. So I doubt it is available to achieve your goal.
    Here is a link for reference:

  • Does your NAS support SMB3?  I use a Synology NAS with File History without problems.  However, I did change the default protocol from SMB2 to SMB3.
