Windows 10: Using The File History Feature

In a world surrounded by technology we are always storing important data onto our systems, especially on our home computers. We store things from pictures, information, work and even often our passwords. Believe it or not, a lot of people create their own password managers on their computer; simply just a text file with their passwords.

Now although we heavily trust our smart computers, from time to time they often encounter problems. Usually, if the problem is that serious, we find ourselves just wanting to reset our computer back to factory new or revert back to a time when the computer was good. Often, our files can become corrupt in many different ways and it can save people so much effort if we was able to go back to a time when the files were not corrupt; almost like a time machine.
