  1. Can system restore points from Windows 7 be accessed on Windows 10?


    Hi. I'm preparing to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10 sometime this weekend or next week and I have a question that I want to know before upgrading. Is it possible to create a restore point in Windows 7, upgrade to Windows 10, and be able to restore to that point in Windows 10? Let me know!

    :)

    How can I setup a RESTORE POINT in Windows 10?

    Does Windows 10 allows for setting of manual Restore Points? I could not find the way of doing it.

    There are some restore point I can go back to (setup from the previous Win 7) from before moving to Windows 10.

    As information point. In the 'System and Security' menu of the Control Panel, I don't have available/visible a
    'System Protection' option from where I could see the System Restore Panel.

    If there is a way, how/where can I access it those settings/options?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Automatic Factory reset

    Hi,

    This issue on your Windows 10 may have occurred due to a corrupted user account or a system file corruption that caused a forced factory reset. Generally, the only way to restore the files is through backups or restore points. Since there are no restore
    points created, we'd like to know what types of files are missing and if there are others that are still saved that can be restored using this

    link
    . The link may be for Windows 7, but this can also be applied on Windows 10.

    Meanwhile, for future purposes please refer to these articles on how to create backups or restore points:


    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Can system restore points from Windows 7 be accessed on Windows 10?

    No, once you upgrade all old restore points are deleted. They wouldn't work in Windows 10 anyway. But Windows Setup backups all your old Windows installation and data in the folder C:\Windows.old Should anything goes wrong, you can return to Windows 7 from there. If you are OK and you have no problem, this folder is automatically deleted after 30 days. So don't worry about your files, the backup is taken automatically from Windows Setup before the upgrade and you have 30 days to return to Windows 7, if you need to. Go ahead. Of course it doesn't hurt if you also take your own backup of important data to another disk or USB flash drive before you start... To minimize compatibility problems you may also update all drivers before the upgrade. Then check if there is a Windows 10 driver for chipset, graphics etc and update again in Windows 10.

    Some people have encountered issues using the rollback feature to rollback to Win 7 from Win 10. To be on the safe side, use something Macrium Reflect Free to create a system image before doing the upgrade that can be used to restore your system back to the way it was. Make sure you use the utility in Macrium Reflect to create a bootable recovery disk in case your computer canno longer boot.
