I hope things improve with this update. I have had to do so many resets and reinstalls with this bugged up creators update I now do not have it running on any desktops or laptops full stop it just costs to much money and time trying to fix problems. If Microsoft are not interested any more in the OS then why not sell it off like every other venture that they screw up.

Does this refer to the Win7 backup solution that's still included in Win10? It's highly annoying if it's removed. I use it alongside a third party software. Two separate backups are better than just one, I always figured. More worrisome is that my aging mom only knows how to use the Windows backup solution.

I don't really understand what would be the point of removing it. I hope it refers to something else. But then again, this is Microsoft were are talking about, so making sense is purely optional.

It says deprecated so it should still be there. Double check by installing a slow ring insider build on a vm.

You can always install LTSB 2016 (14393) for the elderly because it won't change and you won't have to worry about explaining MS decisions to them.

I highly recommend " Macrium Reflect FREE Edition "

It does more then " System Image Backup (SIB) Solution " and for free.

Macrium Reflect Free Edition is a handy tool designed to create backups of your disk partitions in order to protect yourself from data loss. You can use it to restore your disks to a previous state in case of a hardware failure.

Since the data used in our daily activity is saved on the hard drive, it is possible to lose important files and documents due to hardware problems. A solution is to periodically create backups in order to recover the essential files.

This program allows you to backup the data from your hard drive to an image file that can be used to restore everything, down to the last bit. This method allows you to recover not only the documents but also the programs required for your activity.

However, creating an identical copy tends to use more disk space than required which is why Macrium Reflect can compress the file. You can also use the Intelligent sector copy feature which backs up only the used disk sectors.

The interface is easy to use and allows you to quickly select the disk that you want to back up and the location. You also have the option to analyze the partition in order to detect errors before creating the image.

Since backing up a large partition can take more than a few minutes you can automate the process by scheduling the operation. Thus, you can configure the task and allow the program to run it in the background while you are working.

If you need to only retrieve certain files from the image, the app can mount it as a virtual hard drive that you can browse in Windows Explorer. Additionally, the app can convert the image to a Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) that can be used with Windows Virtual PC.

Although casual users can find the app sufficient for their needs, network administrators and other advanced users might need additional options such as incremental backups which can be accessed by purchasing Macrium Reflect Standard Edition or other editions.

Macrium Reflect is really good.
The only thing I care about that it cant do (not sure about the paid version) is recover individual files from a backup.
The complete backup needs to be restored.
At least thats how it was 1/2 year ago ...

You can mount the image like a virtual drive so couldn't you grab individual files like that?
