    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 :) Feedback time

    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.

    i use macrium reflect too,but the win recovery usb drive it makes can't boot my pc (will have to make a cdrom, yes the pc is that old that is still has one, lol)

    either way i'm stuck at the real win10 boot wizard, telling me to use a system restore point, but guess what, it can't find one !

    i set my restore size to 5% (10GB) and nada

    wtf happened , where are my restore points ?
