Windows 8 Backup Tool – File History

My laptop is my lifeblood as a consultant. SkyDrive, Google Drive, etc. are good locations for cloud, offsite backups for documents.

However, time is money. To have reliable backups of laptop, software system setting to restore in a timely fashion is a must so I do not have to take the extra time of installing software.

The previous versions of Microsoft Windows operating systems always had a native tool set labeled, “Backup.” To align with all the new changes in Windows 8 and everything now being named, “an App.” ┬áIt cannot be found without an internet search.

I was happy to find on the Windows 8 help website the app is called, “File History.”

Here is a link to the video and information for configuration.
