Windows 10: Wndows 7 reference on my Windows 10 device? Solved

    Wndows 7 reference on my Windows 10 device?


    Hi,

    I recently purchased a new Windows 10 laptop (HP), which I presumed is a 'clean install' and I'm mooching around looking into how to create a recovery disk. Anyway, when I go into control panel, underneath System and Security I see a link that says;

    Back up and Restore (Windows 7).

    I'm wondering why there's a reference to Windows 7 on my Windows 10 device?

    I don't use that feature.
    I do all my file backup, system image backup, create Recovery drive and create Repair disk from File History feature which is also on Control Panel list.
    Just my preference. Nothing wrong with Backup and Restore (Windows 7) feature.

    Thanks Z, that was just the response I was hoping for. I was just worried it might be indicative of some potential argy bargy on the manufacturers behalf, but that puts my mind at rest.

    Thanks, good to have options and confirmation I was looking in the right area. In the end I came across this page;

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/w...recovery-drive

    and following the instructions seemed to get me to where I wanted to be (I just need to procure a larger spare usb for the job first).

    Yes, I did read there are some decent third party tools for the job, but not being very tech savvy and a bit of a luddite I'll probably stick with the system one. I appreciate the input though.
