Ok, I don't know how I did it but I got both Windows 7 File Recovery and Windows 8 File History active at the same time. I upgraded from Win 7 to 8 Pro and transferred settings so win 7 file recovery was already active, when I tried to turn on win 8 file recovery I got a message saying I cant because win 7 FR was active. So I deactivated win 7 FR then activated win 8 FR, for giggles I went back and turned on win 7 FR and it worked. Now I have both active, from what I have read this was not possible. Did I break my OS or am I just lucky? thoughts?

Hello Kybreos,

To be specific, you cannot have the Windows 7 File Recovery (Windows Backup) "schedule" turned on and be able to use File History.

You will be able to manually create backups and still use File History at the same time.

Hope this helps, :)

I have both running at same time.. and also recall seeing the File History tell me it would not work with win7 doing scheduled backups. Both work now but... after a win7 image part of the backup there will be 4 near identical Filter Manager errors with event id 3 . But all seems to work fine even with those !red errors.

Filter Manager failed to attach to volume '\Device\HarddiskVolume6'. This volume will be unavailable for filtering until a reboot. The final status was 0xC03A001C. ((then same errors for volume 8,10, and 12))


I would be curious if you have changed the File History default 1 hour backup schedule ?
I changed mine to every 12 hours, and left default the win 7 scheduled backup/image at 7 days.

Interesting. Microsoft must have made some changes because I can now have both turned on at the same time no matter what I have either set to.
