The option is still there in 8.1 The advise is to save to an external drive

Open control panel/ then scroll down to file history. You can then choose the files you want to back up and have the options of how often.

Most of what could be done with Win 7 can be done with 8 but not so easily hence my preference for 7 Thankfully news on the internet Threshold is the codename for the next generation of Windows that might be Windows 9.
