  1. Restore Point or Restore from Image?


    Hello r/windows10 , hope you're all well.

    I had some issues that were finally resolved with a USB Recovery Drive. I have my computer all set up back to the way I had it before I had those issues. All is good now. What I would like to do is prevent myself from having to start from scratch every time something like this happens. I have an SSD for windows/apps and 2 hdd's for games/data. Before I used the recovery drive, I unplugged my hdd's so there's no chance of losing all my games/backups/data. Should I unplug them to make a system image or restore point? Also not really sure what the percent slider in Restore Point does. Not sure how to go about this. Any help greatly appreciated.

    restore point

    Hi there mikewilson4, I will be your Independent Advisor for today, I hope we can both resolve your problem.

    This is possible if you have a restore point that can restore your computer 2 months back.

    To check your restore point please follow this,

    This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time, called a system restore point. Restore points are generated when you install a new app or driver, and when you create a restore point manually. Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will
    remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore point was made.

    In the search box on the taskbar, type control panel, and then choose it from the list of results

    In the Control Panel search box, type recovery.

    Select Recovery > Open System Restore.

    In the Restore system files and setting box, select Next.

    Select the restore point that you want to use in the list of results, and then select Scan for affected programs.

    Notes

    If you don’t see the restore point that you want to use, select the Show more restore points check box to see more restore points.

    If you’re not seeing any restore points, it might be because system protection isn’t turned on. Here’s how to check:

    In the search box on the taskbar, type control panel, and then choose it from the list of results.

    In the Control Panel search box, type recovery.

    Select Recovery > Configure System Restore > Configure and see if the Turn on system protection option is selected.

    If the Turn on system protection option is not selected, system protection isn’t turned on and there aren't any restore points. In this scenario, you won't be able to recovery your PC using a system restore point and will need to use one of the other recovery
    options listed on this page.

    If the Turn on system protection option is selected, continue with step 6.

    You'll see a list of items that will be deleted if you remove this restore point. If you're OK with the deletions, select Close> Next > Finish.
