I'm not finding any software that emulates the File History of Windows 10.

I have 10 folders, with many subfolders and evermore files in it. Some files change frequently, some infrequently. I need to have a history of these Folders and all files at least 1-2 Weeks back so I can go back if needed.

It should backup when a file changes.

Any solutions out there that work fast?

Carbonite provides for limited file versioning. Carbonite is a cloud-based backup service with varying levels of support, but the basic version supports this. It is not a local backup program, strictly speaking.

Additionally, I've discovered that Google Drive also supports a form of file versioning. This feature creates a backed up version for each file as the original is saved. It does not meet your requirement of backing up when a file changes.

But wait, there's more. Allway Sync has a provision to synchronize any folder or file to another location. These locations can be cloud based, external drives, internal drives, even FTP. One of the custom parameters is to synchronize the file whenever it is changed. One can set the time period desired for the synchronizing. This is not versioning, however, as the "backed up" file exists only as a duplicate to the most recent one. I suppose one could combine Allway Sync with Google Drive for multi-layer protection.


You could try AutoVer.

Despite being somewhat older it still works for Windows 10.

However you have to set up so-called watchers first, where you define the paths to be watched over and the target locations for the backups.
