When trying to run the File History tool in Windows 8 it runs for about 2 seconds then stops. No files are backed up to the selected drive.
In the event viewer the only error that appears is:
Unable to scan user libraries for changes and perform backup of modified files for configuration C:\Users\win8User\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\FileHistory\Configuration\Config
I've tried deleting both the configuration files and the FileHistory directory on the target drive. Setting up File History again results in the same error.
Is there a better way to track down what is causing the failure? Or somehow get the File History tool to create a more verbose log file that shows what is causing the problem?
