Screenshots: Windows 8 File History (updated)

You can compare files by date and time as well as size

 

If from the Replace or Skip Files dialog box you selected Compare, you would see a window like the one shown in Figure O, which is titled File Conflict, and shows you the file's date and time stamp as well as the file's size. You would select the check box adjacent to the one that you want to keep and click Continue.

What's your take?

File History's user interface makes it easy to take advantage of this data protection tool. Will you use File History? Are you using File History? If so, what has been your experience?
