Windows 10: Creating restore points?
Yeah, it often say it FAILS to restore for some reason.
So how do you personally restore your Windows? What do you use?
The tutorial below can help show you how to do a system restore from a restore point.
System Restore Windows 10
I use Aomei Backupper (the free version is fine, I have pro). I've tried various disk imaging programs from Acronis to O&O (and briefly Rollback RX - which is different- when there was a giveaway. It proved ok initially, then problematical).
Many here use Macrium Reflect Free, a slightly cut down version of the pro. It's got some advanced features but doesn't do incremental backups, and the interface is rather more 'geeky'.
Aomei Backupper offers both differential and incremental backups; both are reported as reliable, certainly A B has helped me enormously. All disk imaging products I've seen allow the images to be mounted and files/folders extracted, so it's a full backup as well as supporting partition/disk restoration.
You need the boot disk and external storage media e.g. a large USB disk, or sthg via a LAN.
One thing worth doing is using MS's disk management to allocate a drive letter to the external USB disk, if used, so the path to the backup is consistent each time that disk is plugged in.
I also use System Restore, and one of Brink's scripts scheduled to create a daily restore point.
I have heard people say that AOMEI just doesn't compare with Macrium in terms of speed. Your thoughts?
So the Freeware AOMEI supports incremental backups and restores? Because the freeware Macrium does not
Correct. Aomei's as fast as anything I've tried- but I've not use Macrium.
Both are under active development.
I created a restore point and at some time later, it disappears. After today's update for a security update for flash player, it's gone to be replaced by one for the update which is normal. I've been noticing this for a while.
I'm puzzled by Microsoft's decision to have System Protection off by default in Win10. Is there a downside to creating Restore Points (other than the disk space needed)?
I usually see the restore points created by windows but it isn't everyday backup, so I want to do a daily restore point backups, I went to Task Scheduler>>Windows>>System Restore, there is a task already there, I changed it to be daily at 4am, and...
...stored on my computer; the physical location (folder)?
I like to have some kind of safety net - a reinstall is always possible but dull. Restore points are one option but I like to have several options since we know that restore points are very volatile.
For the purpose I tried AOMEI OneKey which...
