File History when enabled protects files from within the Libraries, Desktop, Favorites, and Contacts folders and creates copies of the files. In any event of a System Refresh, Reset or Crash the files that were backed up through File History can easily be restored. File History's Restore interface has been made easy and simple to find and restore any version of files that were lost or damaged. File History is turned off by default and needs to be turned on manually and configured how it will save copies of files. Also, before using File History you will need an external storage device or network location with enough storage space to save copies or versions of files for all Users.
