  1. How would restoring a system image affect One drive?


    Let's say i imaged my laptop using a disk imaging solution and 3 months later found the need to restore the same during which time i have made plenty of changes to the files in my One drive local folder and to one drive files uploaded to the cloud.

    On restoration of image the files would typically be older (and probably lesser in number). So when this folder syncs with one drive cloud, will i have to contend with older versions of these files. Is this what will happen?

    :)

  3. System Image Restoration in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate your interest on Windows 10.

    Before we proceed, I would like you to answer the following questions:

    • Could you please tell me are you facing any issue with your Windows 10 computer?
    • Could you please explain in detail “Windows 10 restoration of system Image affects all the existing partitions instead of only C:\”?
    When we create system image, by default, a system image includes the drives required for Windows to run. It also includes Windows and your system settings, programs, and files. You can use a system image to restore the contents of your computer
    if your hard disk or computer ever stops working.

    In Windows 10 We have an option to select other drives while creating System Image backup. If you have selected other drives too when creating System Image backup it will affect those drives too.

    I suggest you to create a system image and check.

    To create system image on Windows 10 follow the below methods.


    • Type File history in the search area on the taskbar and select File history.

    • Click on System image backup on the left bottom corner of the Window file history Window.

    • Click on Create System Image on the left panel of the System Image backup windows.

    • Select the driver, where you want to Create system Image.

    • Follow on screen instruction.
    Please get back to us with the updated information. WE will be happy to assist you further.
