How To Create A System Image Backup On Windows 10

It has been around since Windows 7 ($ 22.95 on Amazon.com), and Microsoft has not touched on it since. You will not find it in the Settings application where it is likely that you will first turn when you need to perform some system maintenance on your PC. Instead, it hides in the old Windows Control Panel. What it is is the ability to create a full system backup, which you can use to restore your PC if it fails, gets damaged or stops working without problems.

Because the tool to create a system image is somewhat hidden in Windows 10 ($ 149.00 on Amazon.com), let’s illuminate where it is and how to use it.

Steps to create a  System Image Backup On Windows 10

1. Open the Control Panel (the easiest way is to look for it or ask Cortana).

2. Click on System and security

3. Click Backup and restore (Windows 7)

4. Click “Create a system image” by the left pane.

5. You have an option for where you want to save the backup image: DVD or external hard drive. I suggest the first, even if your computer has a DVD-RW drive, so connect your external drive to your PC, select On a hard drive and click Next.

6. Click on the Start backup button.

After creating the system image, you will be asked if you want to create a system repair disk. This places your image on a CD or DVD, which you can use to access the image of the system you created if your PC does not boot. Do not worry if your laptop does not have a CD or DVD drive; You can skip this step and start the system from the system image on your external hard drive.
