Hii... I hope the following steps can help you in keepinp backup and recovery..

In Windows 8! To launch the Windows Backup tool, open the Control Panel -> Windows 7 File Recovery applet and click the "Set up Backup" button. Alternatively, you can launch "sdclt.exe" from the Command Prompt to start this applet.

window 7

as windows 8 is new to me and i am not using it till now therefore i could not help much. File History is a new feature in Windows 8 that allows you to setup a schedule for automatically saving copies of documents located in your Libraries, Contacts, Favorites or SkyDrive to an external drive or network location. File History can be leveraged for those situations where you need to recover an older version of a particular document that you've overwritten. To turn on File History, use the Control Panel -> File History applet and click the "Turn On" button.

and then you can visit this link How to setup Windows 8 Backup - YouTube
