    Has anyone tried w10 full system backup and restore?


    Though some testing. Windows 10 is a little too picky about being changed. I was trying my backup software & I also tried partition to partition copy using Mini partition wizard. Both methods ended with windows 10 not able to boot. All windows 10 files were restored & I tried the repair option, it still showed the boot error. I didn't try partition to partition backup with windows 7, that restored fine with my backup software. I don't quite remember the error message but said this file was missing winload.exe which was not missing.

    I haven't tried windows 10 full system backup & restore, So has anyone tried it?

    Thank you for the info in advance.

    :)

    How to do a full backup of my Windows 10 System

    I would like to do a full backup of my computer including all software and system files. I believe this is called a system imaging backup. Can anyone tell me how to do this on Windows 10? My computer only has a backup for Windows 7. All advice and instruction
    will be greatly appreciated.

  3. W10 Backup - Options

    Now I can say, after two weeks, the solution was simple and my backup W10 is still working.

    Evrybody with a backup problem should examine how the backup W7 (via: START (left mouse button) - Configurations - System - Backup) is configured.

    There has to be NO PLANNING and if so the W7 backup should use another external harddrive as the W10 backup.

    If you're talking about Windows native backup/restore, no I havent as I have never had any luck with it. I have used Macrium Reflect for all my imaging needs, and I've never looked back. *Wink

    Native Windows Image Backup and Restore worked okay for me.

    +1 for Macrium.

    I use the Macrium bootable USB rescue media to fix boot problems which I already tried with Win 10 and it works like a charm.

    Well that`s good to see, I thought they removed it, it`s always worked perfect for me with 7, the few times I tested it.

    But for redundancy I use Macrium too.

    It's been under File History since Win 8 *Smile
    But it doesn't matter. Macrium got us covered.

    I use Macrium Reflect as my main imaging program and Windows Imaging as a secondary backup, mainly because I have had problems with restoring Windows image, where as Macrium has never failed me.

    I can't seem to find the system image only in windows tech preview and create a start up disk option. I used the administrator windows powershell to do the image. I am still going to try Macrium as well.

    Control Panel, File History, Create System Image is down in the bottom left corner. It is kinda hidden.

    I thought it was fine under the Backup and Restore Icon where it was in 7 *Smile Feedback time *Wink

    Thanks Addram, I was looking in the Pc settings, wrong place. However, I am using Macrium Reflect now. It even works with Lubuntu linux. Now, I can boot into Windows 7, Windows 10 preview or Lubuntu Linux. With grub 2 installed it is now easier to boot into windows 10.

    Before I installed Installed Lubuntu, Windows 7 system Image backups & restores W7 & W10 without an issue.
