    Fresh Windows 10 installation, then restore from system image: performance improvement?


    It is said that if you reset your PC or re-install Windows 10, then its performance may improve. If you were to re-install it, and then restore a system image of the PC made prior to the re-installation, is there still any performance improvement? If not, then what is the difference between this case and that of a person who re-installs Windows 10, then re-installs all their applications again and puts their files back onto the PC from backup copies? What is it that has actually changed then, in this latter case, for the performance of the system to improve?

    Also, does this performance improvement also occur if you choose the option to reset your PC but keep your files?

    :)

    Restore disk image to a fresh Windows 10 installation


    What I'd like to do is:-


    1. Make a system image backup to an external HDD.
    2. Re-format drive C
    3. Re-install Windows 10 from scratch
    4. Restore all my apps and files (not many files as I keep almost all data on a separate partition.

    Am I expecting the impossible and would the restore try to put the O/S exactly where it was before? The previous installation seems to reside in an unusual partition which I discovered when I tried to rescue windows 10 installation without loosing data and apps. This is the installation screen where I wanted to choose:-

    As one can see, it tells me the current version of Windows is in an unsupported directory - not of my choosing when installed!
    This is my disk partition table for C:-

    Restoring Windows 10 Image using Macrium Reflect


    In addition to the above. Here's my suggestion in step by step.
    I assume you have Macrium Installed in your current HD and already made a backup copy.
    1. Connect your new HD via USB port and boot up.
    2. Run Macrium, click on Restore tab then select the Backup Image that you made to restore
    3. click on "select a different target disk" then select your new HD as destination

    4. Proceed to restore then Shutdown and disconnect the old HD and replace with the new HD
    5. Boot up with your new HD.
