It seems that Microsoft has been upgrading features of its new Operating System, Windows 8 which is scheduled to be launched in October this year. The newest feature that Microsoft has upgraded in Windows 8 is a feature called ‘File History’ which creates a backup of all the personal files, documents, pictures, contacts, etc. automatically by scanning every hour and saving them to a location of the user’s choice, preferably an external hard drive. Unlike its previous Operating System, Windows 7, this feature is enabled by default and the average user doesn’t have to perform extra tasks to activate it. The backup and restore feature in Windows 7 was complex where the users have to define the restore point and date so that the data could be intact in case of hard drive failure. This feature has been upgraded in Windows 8 and Microsoft is very hopeful about its huge market acceptability.
