Windows 8 backup solution

After having lost my one hard drive this weekend, I would like to improve my current adhoc backup solution where I at random times copy files over to my NAS drive (a WD My Book World). I have enabled the Windows 8 “File History” feature, but as far as I can tell that only back up parts of my User folder. I have a bit more stuff spread out over my computer and would like to back up more directories in a fairly automated way.

Anybody maybe please have a suggestion on what is the best way to do this?

File history only saves user data. You can do a full system backup with the recovery feature

Here’s a powershell script to automate 8.1 backups (Via scheduled tasks)
