Thanks to Brian, File History in Windows 10 seems to have worked quite nicely.
A couple of questions:
I selected daily backup. Will it do that automatically when I plug in the drive, or will it assume I want to do it around the same time as the previous day? I didn't find anything within the program to be sure.
When I restore, will I have a choice on what gets restored? I will not want everything back on my new computer as it has a smaller drive than my current computer. The new one will arrive on Wednesday, so I have time to sort things out.
Thanks again for the help.
