More is being revealed about the new feature in Windows 8 called History Vault.
The feature will allow Windows 8 users to backup files and data automatically using the Shadow Copies function of Windows.
Fresh screenshots are now emerging thanks to a recent leak of Windows 8 build 7955.
The new screenshots show a special interface specifically designed for users to look back at previous files.
The backup feature will include the ability to restore to a specific time or date on the system.
Users will also be able to select files and restore them to different timestamps.
Apple’s Mac OS X does currently include a similar feature called Time Machine. This allows users to turn the clock back in time and retrieve data and files that have been previously edited or deleted.
