    Back up

    Upgraded to 10 yesterday. Love it. Anyone know a way to make a Windows 10 recovery CD?

    Should I have to do a system restore would I have to go back to 8.1 or would 10 now be the default?

    As far as I know, on an upgrade from one OS to another, all restore points are erased. Have a look at the dates. They will all be after you upgraded. You can't use system restore to go back to 8.1. You have to use the rollback option.

    Yep, it is the same website. I guess this site doesn't require coding websites ?

    Do you mean System Restore or System recovery?

    Restore will take you to an earlier time of Windows 10.
    Recovery, if it works, would take you back to 8.1.

    Also: Recovery Drive - Create in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Edit: Just tried to do this and it doesn't work, I get:

    @ Ztruker Once one does the upgrade and is connected to the internet you become activated . After if you use the link I provided above you're able to create either a usb windows 10 flash drive or an iso windows 10 disk . I have done iso disk and have used it with my clean install on a new hard drive . So yes it does work

    PS Though one has to upgrade beforehand to be able to use the 10 recovery disk or usb
