Not backing up OneDrive folders which reside on an external drive

Post by glynnseal »

Hi there,

I am having some issues with getting a backup of some folders (and their files) to run.

I have an external drive which is where my OneDrive folders and files are stored. This is synced to the cloud.
I am trying to setup a 'mirror all the files/folders to the destination' to copy these files to a local drive on my PC as a backup.

When I select the source and destinations, and run the backup it only copies the files in the root of the OneDrive directory, and not any of the folders or their files.

Source - E:\OneDrive\
to
Destination - G:\BACKUPS\ONEDRIVE\


Previously I was doing the same with DropBox, but the DropBox files and folders were on a local drive, so it was local to local mirroring.

Any idea why this isn't not working?

Many thanks,
Glynn
