The importance of system backup & restore
Many people have experienced the situation that operating system of computer goes wrong. As a matter of fact, there are a great many factors that can slow down or destroy your PC, including, virus, malware, system junk, cache files, corrupt files, application residue, system failure, bad sector, and other unknown reasons. How to fix this problem and bring system to workable state? A majority of users are willing to fix the problem via system restore which saves computer from system reinstallation. System restore can be carried out by Windows as well as third-party programs, for example, Eassos System Restore.
Windows in-built tool
Windows provides system restore function which is built in operating system. You need to create a restore point when the system is in healthy state. Restore point allows you to get what the name implies. It can restore or convert the system to a specific data and time when the system was backed up.
How to create a restore point using Windows built-in function? Here, I’ll take Windows Vista & Windows 7 for example. First, right click “My Computer” and select “Properties”. Then you’ll see the “System” menu, and then click “System Protection” item on the left side of the menu. Second, On the top of the “System Properties” menu, click the tab “System Protection” and then you’ll see the menu “System Restore”. Third, press the button “Create” which locates on near the bottom right corner of the menu. Note that write a remark for the restore point which is descriptive and concise, so that you can remember the state and details of the restore point. Besides, operating system adds the current data and time for the restore point automatically for later reference. Finally, you’ll receive a confirmation message that informs the restore point has been created successfully.
However, this way of system restore is not the perfect solution and has limitations. System protect provided by Windows uses too much disk space. By default, Windows 7 allocated up to 10% of system partition size to be used by system partition, and the space will not be available as free space on the partition. Plus, the turning off system protection deletes all restore points and system can’t be restored before the function is turned on again and a new restore point is created. And this function can only be used for partition whose file system is NTFS. Therefore, system protect is not the best solution for system restore, and users are advised to use third-party programs to backup & restore system.
