Microsoft’s File History feature with Windows 8 allowed users to recover older file, in case they were deleted by accident. A new online report now suggests that the File History feature is no longer supported in Windows 10 Insider Preview. If this turns out to be true then users will lose the feature by the time the Fall Creators Update hits the PCs. Microsoft hasn’t made any official comments as yet.

The option to start a new backup is nowhere to be found in Build 16212 for Windows 10, suggesting Redmond has decided to axe its built-in back up solution with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, reports Trusted Reviews.

 

However, this could also mean that Microsoft is working on a new in-house backup feature which the company plans on introducing in the upcoming update. The next Windows update — which will be free — is set to bring a load of new features including a cloud-based Clipboard feature that allows copying-pasting between Windows 10, iOS and Android devices.
