Could I make a primitive backup by saving restore points?
« on: 16. November 2014., 00:11:06 »
System restore points are stored in a hidden folder called System Volume Information on the root OS drive.

Strange question, I know. But a friend of mine just lost his Enterprise 7 installation of 3 years due to corruption of system restore points...

So my question is... On his fresh Windows 8.1 machine, can I make a copy with Linux boot dvd to copy the system restore points from this fresh install to a new hard drive? In case this ever happens again, I could just copy the old restore points back and as long Win 8.1 still allows a log on for the recovery repair, I could restore the system back to a state I know is good. Without all the hassle ;p

What do you think - madness??


Let me know please XD

Usually those points are rest-of-the-points dependant, so they can trace aaaaal the files that have to be reverted. It's a better idea to make a HDD Image of a good working state, so if Windows fails catastrofically, you can just sit the HDD image over.

Recovery partition actually is a partition that stores system partition backup, and you can restore system from that partition anytime. Recovery partition can be USB flash drive, external hard disk, DVD/CD, even a invisible partition in computer.
There have a other way you may be interested in---you don’t have to prepare anything except download a freeware—to create a recovery partition. OneKey Recovery is usually used to create a recovery partition, no matter the system is windows 7, or windows 8.
