Issue: How to Restore Windows 10 using a System Image Backup?

I remember that I have created a Windows 10 backup using the System Image. The problem is that I don’t know how to enable it. I have some problems with my PC, so I desperately need to launch the System Image backup. Help.

Solved Answer

System Image is an integrated Windows backup option, which is a perfect alternative for those who don’t want to create backups of separate files or folders. The advantage of the System Backup is that it can be used for creating the backup of the whole computer’s system, including OS, settings, files, apps, and personal data. People who use this option fully protect their personal data and settings from permanent loss after the system’s crash or ransomware infection. The protection from the latter menace is extremely important these days because the number of ransomware attacks and their danger is increasing. Currently, FileLocker, Odin, Onion, Jokers House, and tens of the others viruses that encrypt personal information are actively spreading via spam email attachments and other illegal means. Therefore, be careful and make sure to install and keep a professional anti-malware up-to-date. Our recommendation is Reimage, but you can use an alternative application freely.

However, anti-virus programs may fail to detect the latest ransomware virus. Besides, you can never be sure that your PC won’t encounter some fatal errors and crash unexpectedly. To protect yourself from data loss, you should create a System Image Backup and then restore the system using System Image at any time.  For this purpose, you will need a USB driver with a sufficient storage. Besides, the creation of System Backup image may last up to hours, so you should keep your PC idle. In order to create the backup, you should:

  • Right-click on the “Windows key” and select “Control Panel.”
  • Open “File History” and find “System Image Backup.”
  • Plug in a USB drive or an external drive and then click on the “System Image Backup.”
  • Select the device to which the backup should be stored and press “Next.”
  • Once you are ready, press the “Start backup process” and wait until the backup is created.

Prevent websites, ISP, and other parties from tracking you

Private Internet Access is a VPN that can prevent your Internet Service Provider, the government, and third-parties from tracking your online and allow you to stay completely anonymous. The software provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, ensuring optimal performance and not slowing you down. You can also bypass geo-restrictions and view such services as Netflix, BBC, Disney+, and other popular streaming services without limitations, regardless of where you are.

A VPN is also crucial when it comes to user privacy. Online trackers such as cookies can not only be used by social media platforms and other websites but also your Internet Service Provider and the government. Even if you apply the most secure settings via your web browser, you can still be tracked via apps that you are connected to the internet. Besides, privacy-focused browsers like Tor is are not an optimal choice due to diminished connection speed.

Therefore, to stay completely anonymous and prevent the ISP and the government from spying on you, you should employ Private Internet Access VPN. It will allow you to connect to the internet while being completely anonymous, prevent trackers, ads, as well as malicious content. Most importantly, you will prevent the illegal surveillance activities that NSA and other governmental institutions are performing behind your back.


Recover your lost files quickly

Unforeseen circumstances can happen at any time while using the computer: it can turn off due to a power cut, a Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) can occur, or random Windows updates can decide to reboot the machine when you went away for a few minutes. As a result, your schoolwork, important documents, and other data might be lost.

Additionally, you might also be attacked by malware that can corrupt your Windows or encrypt files with a robust encryption algorithm, and ask for a ransom in Bitcoin for the decryption tool. Cybercriminals might not deliver what they promised, however, so it is better to attempt alternative file recovery methods that could help you to retrieve at least some portion of the lost data.

Data recovery software is one of the options that could help you recover your files. Once you delete a file, it does not vanish into thin air – it remains on your system as long as no new data is written on top of it. Data Recovery Pro is recovery software that searchers for working copies of deleted files within your hard drive. By using the tool, you can prevent loss of valuable documents, school work, personal pictures, and other crucial files.
