The Windows has a time machine. Yeah, a time machine, and it’s called System Restore. The System Restore has been the part of the Windows since the early ages. It is useful and a vital part of the operating system, without it, there isn’t much of a point.
For those of you who don’t know, System Restore lies at the core of the system. What it does is that it literally backs up the backs up the system by creating a copy of it. So, when all hell breaks loose and you do something regretful with the system, you can go back to it and just restore the system. It really is a life saver when it comes to solving some really complicated issues.
The Restore Point is has always been there. From the earlier operating systems to the present ones like XP, 7 and 8. But, most people think that Microsoft has completely removed it in the new OS, Windows 10.
They are wrong. If Microsoft does that, then what’s the point of all that technology. The catch is that they have turned it off by default. Some Windows 10 users may find the System Restore activated, this is because they have upgraded their system and the feature was already turned on. If you have bought a recent device running on Windows 10, then you might want to turn it on.
