@dedgar4883 It's still a little clear how you performed your initial back up of your files. The built-in supported method of back up in Windows 10 is File History. This is different that the Backup and Restore (Windows 7) utility which is only for restoring files from older Windows 7 backups to a Windows 10 device. It is not intended to be used as a backup utility for Windows 10. Below are the two different utilities (File History on the left and Backup and Restore (Windows 7) on the right).
