Additionally, WD products simplify the process of computer backup through support of the new File History feature within Windows 8. File History is a file backup application that makes it easy to schedule automatic backups to any hard drive attached to the computer or on the network. This simplified process of performing automatic, periodical back up of personal files stored in Libraries, Desktop, Favorites, and Contacts folders.
WD drives also support the new Windows 8 Storage Spaces feature, which allows users to make multiple external hard drives appear as a single storage volume. Storage Spaces can be used in conjunction with File History to create redundant backups for enhanced security.
