  1. Backing up and restoring system in Windows 10 (between two drives)


    I backed up my Windows 10 system onto an external hard drive as a disk image. I have a clean Windows 10 boot image on a flash drive. I also have disk repair on a CD ROM. I need to restore this backed up system onto a new internal hard drive. Nothing I have tried for the past 6 hours has worked.

    I would think that booting into the Windows System wizard and going to system restore and just selecting the system restore disk image would do the trick, but when I select the system restore disk image, it says I need to reboot using disk repair. I go into the BIOS settings to tell the computer to boot into the disk repair on the CD ROM, and that option is not available. I see my external drive system disk image, the USB boot image, and the internal drive, but not the CD ROM.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
