<![CDATA[More is being revealed about the new feature in Windows 8 called History Vault. The feature will allow Windows 8 users to backup files and data automatically using the Shadow Copies function of Windows. Fresh screenshots are now emerging thanks to a recent leak of Windows 8 build 7955. The new screenshots show a special interface specifically designed for users to look back at previous files. The backup feature will include the ability to restore to a specific time or date on the system. Users will also be able to select files and restore them to different timestamps. Apple’s Mac OS X does currently include a similar feature called Time Machine. This allows users to turn the clock back in time and retrieve data and files that have been previously edited or deleted.

This is a very handy feature, I don’t know how many times I have deleted my only copy of a document or picture. This is a much more tidy way than having to use a file recovery software. I really like the timestamps when editing multiple instances of certain files I could grab the exact one I need to have retrieved.
