Windows 10 File History Backup – Part 1
Like Windows 8, Windows 10 comes with a kind of “Time Machine” style backup program. If you accidentally change or edit a file in your personal folder, you can use the Windows 10 File History backup to restore a copy from earlier. This new backup is very powerful and as long as you understand its limitations it can be very useful too.
Microsoft gave this tool an overhaul in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, which means it now works slightly differently to the Windows 8 version. Because of this, we’ve produced a separate screencast for Windows 10 users.

Remember that Windows 10 File History only protects files and folders within your personal folders and libraries. It does not fully protect against hard drive failure for instance. Make sure you have some way of restoring your operating system in the event of a system failure.
