How To Create a Recovery Image and Restore Your System From Windows 10 Image ⚕️💻🤔


Hello everybody! This video will tell you how to create an
image to restore the system on Windows 10, that is to create a complete system image
with all of its settings, applications, users etc. As a result, you receive the condition of
Windows 10 which existed at the time of creating a backup copy. With the help of this function you can always
get your system back to the previously saved condition. In order to create a Windows 10 system recovery
image, go to the Start menu and click on Control Panel. Select the view option Large Icons, then look
for File History. In the next window, click on System Image
Backup and Create a system image. Then choose the location where this backup
copy should be saved (it can be an external hard disk, a DVD or a network folder). I’d like to note that you can create a Windows
10 recovery image on a flash drive only when this drive is recognized as a hard disk. Click next, select the disks to be backed
up (by default they are the system disk (disk C), the system reserved disk with the name
Restore (system) and EFI encrypted system partition). Click on Start Backup and the process of creating
a Windows 10 backup copy starts. Sometimes it can take up quite a long time. When it is over, you will be suggested to
create a recovery drive. If you don’t have it, and you don’t have
a boot disk or flash drive and even don’t have access to another PC (where you could
create them quickly), then I recommend creating such drive. As I already have one, I will not create such
recovery drive. In my case, I click No and we can see a message
that backup was successful, that is a Windows 10 recovery image was created. In order to recover Windows 10 from a recovery
image you need to enter the system recovery envronment. You can do it right from the system (you should
go to Start menu – Settings –
Update and Security – Recovery and click on Restart now in the section Advanced startup). If Windows 10 won’t boot you can get to
the system recovery environment with the help of a boot disk or a flash drive where, after
selecting your keyboard layout, you should click on System Restore, or with the help
of a recovery drive. You can see how to create a recovery drive
and use it to enter Windows 10 recovery environment in my video “Resetting Windows 10, 8, 7
if your computer won’t boot.” I will show it with the example of a boot
flash drive with Windows 10. Restart your computer and go to BIOS or UEFI
(usually by pressing Delete for most PCs or F2 for most laptops). Set boot priority to let the computer boot
from the USB drive (in my case, it is EFI USB Device) and press Enter. In the next window, select the language we
need (by default it is English), click Next and then System Recovery. Now click on Troubleshoot / Advanced options
/ System image recovery and choose Windows 10 as the target system. Select “Use the last available system image”
and click Next. After that, the recovery process will start. If you only created an image for disk C and
have not changed your partition structure ever since, there is no need to worry about
the safety of your data on disk D or other disks. When the process is over, set the boot sequence
in BIOS so that the hard disk comes first and boot Windows 10 in the same condition
as it was saved to a backup copy. Thank you for your attention and good luck. If you liked this video, click the Like button
