The 2nd KB Article

Community Content KB Article ID: 2790565 has been published. This Article describes how to resolve an error for File History to backup files using a Virtual Hard Disk.


The resolution has been tested using both a Guest machine through Hyper-V and my actual Windows 8 machines. After experiencing several issues while using File History, the article presents a resolution with two methods. I personally prefer Method 1 which allows you to create scripts for allowing a VHD to auto-mount with a UAC prompt whenever you restart, through this way you visually know that the script executes. For those who want a more silent type of execution for a VHD mount, you may prefer to use Method 2 through Task Scheduler. The resolution applies for Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro.
