Backup: How to Backup and Restore Windows File image

Backup: System Image Backups work best if the current Windows 10 or Windows 11 system fails.

If your Windows site is unstable or damaged, a special support feature from Microsoft can help you — if you prepare in advance.

System Backup System creates the entire image file Windows 10 or Windows 11 rather than just selected files and folders stored in File History. That way, if Windows ever crashes, crashes, or stops working, you can restore the image to its original position.

This is a better option than Drive Recovery, which will not save your personal files, as well as Recovery Point, which can sometimes fail. The only drawback is that you cannot restore individual files using System Image Backup, only the whole image. So you will want to create a custom image to install the latest version of your Windows environment.

Before you can start, you will need to set up an external source to save your image file. You can create an image on DVDs, but the easiest way is to use an external drive, network drive, or network-attached storage drive (NAS). Let’s get started.

Set Backup

The fastest way to get to System Image Backup in Windows 10 or 11 using the Control Panel. Use the Windows search function in Taskbar to type Control Panel, and select it from results. With the Control Panel in icon view, select Save and Restore (Windows 7). Yes, it still does Windows 7, but this feature works best for Windows 10 and 11.
Click Create a system image link, and then select where you want to back up — the drive, DVD, or network location. If you want to use an external drive, make sure it is formatted using NTFS to save the image. Click Next.
Determine which areas or parts of your hard drive will be included in the image file, then click the Start Backup button. Windows is now creating an image file.

Create a System Repair Disk

You will then need to create a system repair disk that you will use if Windows cannot open itself. You will need a disk drive as this option still does not support USB drives to boot your PC. If your computer does not have a proper drive, you can always purchase and connect an external DVD drive.

Insert a CD or DVD into your drive. Click the Create System repair disk in the Backup and Restore window (Windows 7). Make sure your DVD drive appears and then click the Create disc button.

System Image Recovery

Okay, now let’s say you’re in trouble one day because Windows is not behaving properly. Returning it to an image file may be your only option. Make sure your backup media is available. If you can, start your PC.
In Windows 10, go to Settings> Recovery and Security> Restore. In the Advanced Launch section, click the Restart button now under Advanced Launch. Windows 11 users have to open Settings> System> Restore and then click Restart button next to Advanced Launch.
In the Select an option window, go to Troubleshooting> Advanced Options> System Image Finder> See more recovery options. Select System Image Discovery. From there, follow the instructions to restore your image file.
If Windows does not start, start your PC with a system repair disk. You should be taken to the Select option window, where you can follow the same steps to restore Windows to its original state (hopefully healthy).
