Just noticed the files that have been saved to my remote HD via file history are all saved twice, is this normal?

Yes.   File history maintains several copies of your files so that you can retrieve the version of a file that you want.  This is common in file backup software.

 

See this article on how to use File History from when it came on the scene with Windows 8.  There's also a decent article in Microsoft's online Technet Magazine, but you will have to log in with your Microsoft account if you wish to read it.

But they are not different copies, they are dated the same and the same time.
