Windows 10 back up, Multiple versions?

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When you use the HP Windows backup to an external hard drive, does the backup create multiple copies? For example if I do a daily back up, would there be 7 identical backups in a week if I was on vacation and not using the computer? Also can you go into the external drive and see the files that were backed up? For example if I wanted to find a specific photo?

Your backups are at risk when an external target drive is permanently connected to your PC.


A malware infection will attack all attached storage devices.
