Backup and restore Windows 10 full-time functional
Regular functions return Windows to life in critical situations when the system fail and even not loaded, is not particularly popular. Microsoft itself inadvertently contributed to the fact that normal users this tool is not found in the wilds of system settings. Even in Windows 10, where important system settings in the Settings app, under «Update and security» you will see only the possibility of returning the computer to its original state and the mode with a special boot options that allows you to restore Windows from a system image, in fact, from a backup. And here function of creation of the system image, you need to look for inside the control panel, preferably under the guidance of step-by-step instructions. Such will be given below. In this article we will look at how to create a backup of the Windows 10 staff functionality and how the process of system restore.
1. The regular backup functionality of Windows 10
Regular backup feature got Windows 10 inherited from Windows Vista. As a third-party program-bacupari, Windows backup, created with the help of built-in functionality represents the system with all its settings, the boot sector, installed programs and stored on the system disk user files.
All of this can be restored from a backup when Windows fails. Even if the system will not boot to restore her health from a recovery environment invoked by pressing F8 when the computer boots. In this environment, you can start the process of returning the system to a state from a backup. Wednesday restore an unbootable Mac Windows 10, you can get if you do not challenge the F8 key, then in two other ways. Windows recovery environment 10 is included in the installation disk of the system. For critical cases you can prepare the recovery disc of Windows, it is provided by the standard functionality of the system.
In terms of call options the recovery environment an unbootable Mac Windows regular functionality as a backup tool outperforms third-party software Balapanov. But this is its only winning point. Throughout the rest of the native functionality, alas, is far from perfect.
For example, Acronis True Image is a veteran in the market of software for backup and recovery of computer data – creates a backup of the Windows much faster than it does regular functionality. To store system backups created using the built-in functionality, you will need approximately two times more disk space than is required for backups Acronis True Image.
In the process of creating system backups the standard functionality you won’t get the opportunity to set this up automatically on a schedule or while the computer is idle, as it may offer Acronis True Image. In Windows this can be achieved only with the help of the Scheduler.
However, backup Windows and restore it with the standard functionality is the basics for those wishing to learn the potential of Microsoft’s operating system.
2. Create system image

Then the following window, select the storage location of the image. This can be a nonsystem disk partition, another hard disk (internal or external), as well as network resources. There is even the possibility of storing the system image on several DVD-ROMs. In our case, the selected partition on the second HDD is connected. This is a good option of deciding where to store important data, such as backing up the operating system. In the future Windows will be restored, even if you fail the primary hard disk which is used for system partition. Click «Next».
Regular functionality provides not only up the system partition with Windows in the image can be included copies of available non-system disk partition. Backup of non-system data through the native functionality of Windows – not the best way to ensure this data safety due to inefficient use of disk space. For backup of user data is better to resort to third-party software. Because in our case the system image will include a preset configuration – Windows partition and the reserved system space. Click «Next».
In the confirmation window the backup options, click «Archive».
When the imaging process is complete, Windows 10 will prompt you to prepare for the future with a recovery disc.

If there is a serious problem with a recovery disc to boot will be easier than to use the F8 key when the computer boots. Response time the button is hard to catch because of reduced startup time of Windows 10. This feature version of the system 10 inherited from version 8.
