Screenshots: Windows 8 File History (updated)

When File History is done with the initial backup, you'll see a date and time stamp

As soon as File History is done backing up your files, it displays a date and time stamp, as shown in Figure D, so you'll know how current the backup is. You'll also see how much disk space is still available. If at any time you want to manually create a backup, you can click the Run now link.
