Windows 8 File History Backup – Part 1

Backup has changed again in Windows 8. This time, Microsoft has delivered a kind of “Time Machine” style backup to the operating system. If you accidentally change or edit a file in your personal folder, you can use the Windows 8 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.

Windows 10 Users – Using File History on your PC is almost exactly the same as using it on a Windows 8 PC. You should start the utility by searching for it from the search bar rather than the Start screen.

Additional notes

Remember that Windows 8 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.
