    Restore options broken ?


    When we upgraded Win 7 to Win 8, the restore/repair options, not restore points, were broken. Anyone know
    if the update to Win 10 carried over the problem. Just curious because I image my drives.

    :)

  3. Failed to restore backup in Lumia 950

    This is a new phone and I am willing to reset it and try. I really need the backup restored.

    I do have an alternate email address listed in my accounts setup. But during restore the only option it gave me was to get the code by SMS. It said choose other option but there was nothing to tap on there or choose.

    This seems really broken. Can I setup the phone without the SIM and then insert the SIM after the phone is setup?

    Restore options broken ?

    My weekly scheduled backup Sunday night at 7:00pm I had set up in Win7 carried over to W10 in an upgrade to W10 from windows update.

    Sounds like there's not a recovery partition on your drive, and maybe there wasn't one when you had Win7, I upgraded to 7 (upgrade cd) from XP Pro (retail) and didn't have any recovery options, just restore points. Doing a clean install does create a recovery partition but apparently an upgrade doesn't.

    I can't make a recovery disc because there is no recovery partition. I've checked with Partition Wizard and disk part from an admin command prompt, I'm sure there is only 1 partition on the C: OS drive and no recovery partition.
