    nero 12 backitup or windows 8.1 file history


    OK so i been using the built in windows 8.1 file history since i had windows 8 and i notes it just fills my hardrive up,with useless repeats of the same stuff. forcing me to go in and clear them out, so i have Nero 12 backitup pro which i have never used. I was wondering if i should use it as it backs up only when something changes in the file. Which one would be better turn off windows 8.1 file history clear all its useless back up and start over with nero 12 backitup?.

    I have used both, but I prefer Acronis instead... Acronis has been more reliable for me than windows built-in tools or Nero...

    i figured out all this time why my windows file history was messing up as it can't or is not suppose to copy to a drive included in a library which my drive is as i have videos on there, so this would explain after i inadvertently deleted the file history folder it said it cant backup to this drive, so i have my long awaited answer as to why it always messed up . so i guess Nero full backup of my system will have to do. although i discovered i hate the way it dose it but oh well its a backup program and paid for.
