Any of you folks use your computers for work also? The default setting of the native Windows app 'File History' is to make incremental backups every hour, just saying.
Perhaps we can talk about what makes Windows 10 more secure than previous Windows versions, we have a nice momentum going on in this thread ...

I use Crashplan for backups. It has a free version and a paid version. The free version will let you backup to internal/external HDDs, as well as other computers on your LAN or on the internet. The paid version will also back you up to their cloud. You can even specify your own "key", for extra protection. All backups are versioned. Many people that have been hit with the crypto malware have successfully recovered all their data from Crashplan backups because of the versioning. Because the backup files are encrypted and compressed, they do not have the common file extensions that the malware look for to encrypt.

Microsoft Security Essentials Scores Incredibly Well in New Antivirus
Incredibly slow file transfer It starts at around 300MB/s but after a second it drops to 20MB/s. On Windows 7 it was usually around 100MB/s. This is for transferring to second hard drive. It's even slower transferring to USB drive, about 2 MB/s.

Windows Live Essentials Updates + Microsoft Expression Web Does anyone know why Microsoft canceled support/discontinued Microsoft Expression Web and why Windows Live Essentials, especially Windows Live Writer hasn't been updated in years? Both are great products but Windows Live Writer is my heartbeat...
