    Can anyone tell me the trick? I clearly have a USB Drive connected and mounted. I can copy files manually. Why is the super duper special snowflake requirement of File History that prevents it from seeing my USB drive?

    There is plenty of space
    It is formatted in NTFS
    It does not have any special sleep mode

    I don't get it. I have this issue with a bunch of hard drives.

    And, of course, File History gives ZERO indication jus that it cannot find any available drives.

    I am using X-copy right now but it is annoying there is nothing in Win 10 to file backup easy.

    Is there any solution that anyone has found?

    Try to disable power saving for that USB driver, from device manager.
    Also try to manually start the service: Fix: File History Doesn’t Recognize This Drive
    You can always use other free software: Macrium or AOMEI Backupper Standard.
