What’s the most important part of a computer? Is it the CPU? The hard drive? Possibly the memory? Nope, it’s none of these. The most important part of any computer is its data. Yep, the information managed by a PC -- photos, documents, e-mails, and other such things -- is the only thing about it that may truly be irreplaceable. Yet, strangely, it may also be the least protected. Microsoft aims to change that by introducing File History to protect Windows 8 users.

File History: Reinventing Backup

Backup in Windows is nothing new -- it’s been there for generations. The problem is that very few people use it. Even Microsoft admits less than 5% of consumers use Windows Backup. Although people have devices like surge protectors and UPSes to protect their equipment, they are leaving their most important asset -- their data -- exposed to loss and corruption.

With the new File History feature, Windows aims to reinvent backup, making data protection so easy that every user can easily safeguard their information. File History eliminates the complexity of backup and restore operations. Designed for the modern PC user, File History is automatic and transparent once enabled. Users create more information in more places than ever before. Laptops, tablets, and smartphones have only increased the importance of data protection. Designed with all this in mind, File History not only creates copies of files, but it also provides protection against unintended modifications to those files.
