    Win 8 64bit substitute for the incomparable Powerquest DataKeeper?

    The beauty of this small backup programme was its ability to keep dozens (if you wish) copies of your data files, it could run automatically or manually. I cannot find anything that compares. Maybe the knowledgeable folks here have come across one.

    I have tried that but I cannot choose the folders that I wish. I do not use libraries I prefer the old fashioned way of locating my files.

    X3 for File History.
    pledden, doesn't the 'exclude folders' option not do what you want? I've excluded my Skydrive folder and the public folders from mine.

    Thank you. But I have just discovered File History only backs up to external drives, although I have those I wish it to point to an internal drive. Interestingly when I switched File History back on it said it couldn't connect to my internal or external drives. Said I had to reconnect.
