    Windows 10 Redstone To Feature Improved Backup To OneDrive


    Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage service has quickly grown in popularity since its integration into the Windows platform. With Windows 10 having the cloud storage service being deeply integrated into the OS, it’s a bit surprising that there is not a way to back up your machine to the cloud service.

    Thanks to a leaked build last week, it looks like Microsoft is preparing to offer an improved backup solution that will give you better control of the items that are stored in the cloud service. As you can see from the screenshot above from build 14278, you will soon have the ability to turn off and on having Onedrive store your apps, passwords, settings and accounts.

    The one feature that is currently not available that some users may want is to fully backup your device to the cloud. Seeing as this functionality is now starting to show up in Windows 10, it’s certainly possible the company could enable this feature in an upcoming release...

    That might be enticing.

    Sounds very interesting assuming that the backup can be used without errors. There's bound to be bugs along the way :)

    "fully backup your device to the cloud" Sounds good, assuming you have enough space on your OneDrive? I have yet to buy (pay for) any extra OneDrive storage. I have very limited space available. Not near enough to even fully backup one device. I guess it all depends on what your definition of "fully backup" is? It's just somebodies, wish it was there, anyway. As far as the screen shot in the article, it looks like just more options added to the sync function?

    I don't have any plans on using Onedrive to backup my entire system. I do use it to save some of my data files, documents and pictures. I do see how this is a definite plus for those who do want to use it for their system backup.
