I have an addition to Aiden's question. I enabled File History 3 weeks ago and it is still saying "File history is saving copies of your files for the first time". When I click on "Restore Personal Files" it says the same and that "this may take a while...". I have 550GB data on my computer. In fact there is less data in my external drive now than a week ago!. Anybody got any idea what is happening? Thanks for your help.
It can take a really long time, depending on what you have on your machine. Keep in mind that it is locating and backing up all of your contacts, IE favorites, everything in your libraries, all the stuff on your desktop, etc. Just take a long coffee break (lunch too, maybe) and don’t sweat it.
