Just installed fresh Windows 10.  Did so using a single partition.  Maybe a bad idea?

 

When things start going slow, would like to revert to this version.  Obviously My Documents and other sections will be different.

 

I would like to be able to go back to this basic configuration, but not have to reinstall everything.

 

Recommendations?

 

Thanks

Aomei Backupper, Macrium Reflect & EaseUs are quite popular. Others listed may also do a good job for you. You certainly could try more than just one. Any image you create should be saved on some sort of external media. Having the backup image on your primary internal hard drive would be of no use to you if the drive fails.

I've used the 3 mentioned at one time or another over the past. What I may like is no given that you would also.

I'm sure that others will post some feedback regarding their preferred backup imaging software.

or, you can burn yourself a spare copy of windows 10 from HERE 

 

(dvd or usb ....32 bit or 64 bit)

 

You would then need to reinstate your documents, pics etc from a backup software that supports individual file and folder backup, such as Aomei Backupper

fed up with Windows antics...??

 

LINUX IS THE ANSWER

 

I USE LINUX MINT EXCLUSIVELY... NO DUAL BOOT, NO VIRTUAL MACHINE

 

 

 Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with your Microsoft product.
