In case if you don’t know the Windows 10 have a built in backup functionality which allows you to restore you files and folders in case if they deleted, damaged or lost. But it looks like Microsoft is removing File History backup feature with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

The File History backup feature is very useful if you want to transfer your files from one PC to another, or lost files during creating new user, or when you perform a clean install. Couple of days ago Microsoft accidentally released a internal build to the Windows Insider in the Fast ring. Well of course this build totally freak out Windows Insider team. Though, later on they explained why and how this happened. They also provided solution to roll back to previous version and keep your device safe. But…?
