    I set up Windows 8 file history on a 2TB drive and while I do have a lot of media, it should have enough room for two writes but file history doesn't have me much flexibility to control how much to keep...I have it selected"until space is needed" but I always come in to out of space. Beyond getting a larger drive, any other suggestions?

    Thanks!

    You can exclude any folders that you don't need backed up using file history, that might buy you some space, also with the new Storage Spaces feature you don't have to replace your drive with a new one, you can add storage with a new drive and have Windows configure it as a single volume with the old one
