Let say, if my Windows 8 is down, or my computer hardware is damaged, and I must reinstall Windows 8 or buy a new Windows 8 machine.
Can I use the File History Image from old Windows 8, to restore my files, say MY DOCUMENT, DESKTOP....etc to the new Windows 8 machine?

Or I must buy other old backup solution, such as Norton or even back to use the Windows 7 backup?
