Win 8 File History and volatile files

0 votes
asked by

How does 'Win 8 File History' manage very volatile files like OUTLOOK .PST files? How much disc space do backup files need (in terms of the size of the original data files).
I can see the attraction of this mechanism but I'm familiar with traditional scheduled backups. These are necessarily wasteful in terms of space because most files are not changed frequently.

They defenetly need a lot of space. If you are not happy with this feature you should report to mocrosoft.
