file history in windows

My File History was working fine in windows 10 up until a few weeks ageo
I can still retrieve older files from file history but it has not been backing up for 4 weeks
Nothing has changed on my system
I have tried all the config options , different drives, manual file history backup  etc but nothing owrks

I work in IT so I know my way around windows and configs
Any ideas?

Are you sure the files you're using to test have been changed?  I'm honestly not sure how File History works in Windows 10, but in Windows Server the file has to change before the original file is saved.

You could also try the old "turn-off-and-on-again-game", it has solved many problems in windows' history. I mean, turn off/on file history, not your computer.

Good 'ol reboot.  The best is when you think, "na man I've advanced past the point I need to include rebooting as a troubleshooting step" only to have rebooting resolve the issue 3 hours later.

So again assuming File History in Windows 10 works along the same lines as it does with Windows Server, make sure the storage location for all these file versions isn't full.  After reading the following article:
