I posted a question detailing my problems with Windows 8's File History. I use it for backups and I have a couple of things I'd like it to do, but it fell short. With certain specific needs in mind, I asked if there are any pieces of software that might match my requirements.
I've looked into the How do I ask a question that may require recommending software? thread before posting on meta. In my original post I had tried being specific with the requirements I had for my backup software and tried avoiding subjective terms, so I have trouble seeing why my question was closed.
Could you elaborate on why my question was rejected, despite my belief that I acted in accordance with community rules? Is there a way that I can improve the post so that it may be reopened?
