Taking backup of the data and files stored on your PC is a crucial task that majority of us neglect to do. Lately Microsoft Corporation has announced to include a novel feature called ‘File History’ to its forthcoming Windows 8 operating system. The newly revealed feature for Windows 8 is an automatic point-in-time backup system that once in a while saves screenshots of your data to a different location (including network file share or directly connected hard disk), saving copies of your files so that you can get them back if they are accidentally lost or damaged.
Once One per hour, by default, any form of modified data gets automatically and safely archived to a preferred location. The best part is that you can conveniently browse different versions of a folder or a file that the system has stored, thanks to its simple user interface. Also, you can open or restore the data accordingly.
How to enable File History
When it comes to enabling the File History in Windows 8 to make saving files easier, just go to Control Panel and select System and Security. Also, you can select ‘Configure this drive for backup option’ in the connected hard disk.
