    Making a disk image in Windows 10


    I want to make a disk image of my Windows 10 drive so that if I decided to downgrade to Windows 10 Home I'll some of my data saved. Is this theoretically possible?

    Sure, it is absolutely possible. Macrium Reflect Free should be able to do what you want.

    Sure - go to settings, update and security, backup, Go to "Backup and Restore (Windows 7)", and from next screen, click on 'create system image'. You will also need to create a "system repair disk".

    Many regulars here recommend using quality 3rd party apps such as Macrium Reflect Free (I only use that), as they are very reliable and versatile. However, the windows system is ok for basic imaging.

    When you've gotten downgrade like you want it, I urge you to get yourself an external hard drive and backup program. You can set it up to do everything auto at the time and frequency of your choice. 1 TB external hard drives about $50 and free backup program is the EaseUS Todo Backup Free. That can save you a lot of time and frustration the next time something like this happens. Sooner or later it happens to all computers for one reason or another.
