    Files History is something which is closely related to Backup in Windows previous versions, in Windows 8 they have include some more tweaks to it and introduced it with new name as Files History. You can even backup your files in the USB stick. Now to use this feature follow the below steps,

    STEP 1: Go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> File History.
    STEP 2: Now from the left panel select Exclude Folders to help define what you are going to save as part of backup files.
    STEP 3: Select Advanced Settings to check the backup frequency.
    STEP 4: Select Change Drive option to choose the backup destination.
    STEP 5: Turn On to enable the feature with your settings.

    In this way you can use this File History option in Windows 8.
