Windows 8.1 - File History --how far back does the versions go?


I am using the File History feature in Windows 8.1 to back up to another location on the network. There is a file which I update every day. I believe this feature allows me to go back to recover a file 'as it was at any point in the past' -- could I ask how far back this history will go?

If I create a new today for example and changed it every day for the next year with file history in use could I revert back 6 months or even the full year - will it allow you to go back to the date on which the file was first created?

Many thanks,

Depends upon available space, once the space is filled up then the oldest files will be deleted.

Is this relating to the cache size or the size of the target disk to which the backup is being saved?
