    Windows 10 Image

    You'd think by 2018 this would be easy, wouldn't you?

    To start with.. you SHOULD be able to type it into the start bar and get the right result

    But what do you type?

    Image? no
    Backup? nope cos that gives you the chance to Look for an old backup in Win7...

    (turns out that I where I needed to go)

    So here I am in Win 10 looking at a Back up and Restore (Windows 7 ) page......great

    What on earth is going on in the Microslush world for this to still not be sorted.

    What would a noob look for?

    Re: Windows 10 Image

    from the Windows 7 page you mention... over on the left you should see an option to create a system image - it's detailed at https://pureinfotech.com/create-wind...-image-backup/


    Or... just install Veeam Free and use that instead, it's what I do and it's less hassle.

    Re: Windows 10 Image

    good advice, thank you.

    but what I am implying is this... with all the Windows updates ... surely one of them could have included making this easy....?

    Re: Windows 10 Image

    I see what you mean now, yeah... the removal/hiding of the system image backup in Win8 was a bad move in my eyes.

    That said: if Microsoft include a tool like this then it tends to get derided as bloatware, if they don't then people complain...

    Re: Windows 10 Image

    i have to admit I gave up and re installed.

    I had a new build PC with a spin drive and wanted to swap it to an SSD.

    I did make an Image, and it went onto a USB drive, but when I booted back into Windows recovery, and showed it the Image it didn't recognise it.. and after an hour or arsing about i just reinstalled.

    Re: Windows 10 Image

    The "old" backup thing is the imaging stuff, it works just as before. They're trying to push file history for day-to-day users. This combined with hardware-bound activation and the complete reset functionality should be enough for every day users.

    Old backup for people wanting to create an image.

    Full disclosure: I've used their virtualization backups a lot over the past few year. Amazing software. Totally reliable in an enterprise context.

    I have used Veeam Free to back up my PC before. On every occasion I have tried to restore, it has failed. Once with Windows 7 and once with Windows 10. I stopped using it for Physical backups after that.
