Windows 10: will 8.1 backups still work

    will 8.1 backups still work

    Good morning,

    I am waiting to receive my reserved copy of Windows 10. I am curious if my Acronis disk images of Win 8.1 will still work after upgrading to Win10?

    Thanks and regards,

    Maybe! Before I upgraded to Windows 10, I cloned my system to a removable hard drive. I ran into problems with the Windows 10 upgrade so I cloned back from my removable hard drive to my drive C:. Windows 8.1 Pro started up and everything seemed to be working fine until it stopped working fine. I ended up doing a clean install of Windows 10.

    Right now this Windows 10 system seems very stable and everything I need installed and updated. If I need to go back to Windows 8.1 for anything, I will disconnect the Internet and boot from my removable drive.
