MICROSOFT is plagued by idiots!!!!
- Just turn it off
- then click "select drive"
- and when it asks you the retarded question... just click >>>>>"NO"<<<<<<< -_-
Seriously... this is the answer.... frigging retards at microsoft... to think it takes an army of programmers and billions of dollars to create such idiocy!
I cant believe these morons put everyone through such hell and then don't even bother to follow up with the correct solution.
To top it of the moron moderator marks this as an answer??!!!
What a pathetic joke - I hope everyone reads this message before being punished by the miles of bullcrap in this thread -_-
Microsoft = ridiculous
Thanks! I guess the TL;DR version is "to change your file history drive you need to discard the current temp files."
It's the bad wording in the messages.
the first message (which I can only vaguely remember so can't quote exactly) that gives you the impression you can continue
but doesn't make clear that to so will need the "old drive" configured the way the "old drive" was.
Then the next message is just confusing:
we can't copy files to this location. Your current File History drive is disconnected. Reconnect the drive and try again
we can't copy files to this location.
[because there's a problem with the new location]
Your current File History drive is disconnected.
[the new location is disconnected]
Reconnect the drive and try again
[reconnect your new location and try again]
When it should be reworded to say something along the lines of (in more formal language):
"You asked us to continue...give us the drive you were previously using...or if it's no longer available, click here to start from scratch"
(I know that's all the opposite of tldr but I'm trying again to put into words what I think was happening).
