Disconnected file history drive.

This has me puzzled.

Why, when I try to do a manual backup do I keep getting a pop up box telling me:

Reconnect your drive.

Your file history drive was disconnected for too long. Reconnect and tap or click to keep saving copies of your files.

Is this some rubbish instruction to be ignored or some sort of glitch? I'm running windows 10 and it's a new 1tb Toshiba external hard drive. Done the usual disconnect and reconnects. 

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

It means you need to fetch a plumber.
