I'm confused by the backup settings interface for Windows 10. I want to create an external backup of my files and all of their versions. I think that's what I accomplished in the "Backup Settings" window:
I tried to select my external drive to backup to:
When I then try to do a test restore, I can open up "File History", but I don't know where this history is coming from:
Am I backing up my file history to my external drive or is it just a snapshot of my files at the current state? Am I also saving the file-history to my local drive? How can I figure this out?
What I want to do is backup my system, so when my device inevitably brick itself, I can plug this external drive into the new system and restore everything, including my files and maybe even my programs.
