What does Windows 8 backup do?
Posted on 2015-01-19
Just want to know how a Windows 8 backup works. Here is what I think it does and how it can be used:
- it backs up everything that is on the HDD except the Windows 8 OS and system files and system settings
- if HDD crashes, I re-install Windows 8 from scratch since the backup does not re-install the OS and
system files and system settings
- if I restore the files from backup, once I re-installed Windows 8, I will get all my documents, videos, music, etc. and also all the programs I installed with their settings back on my new OS installation
Please correct me where I am wrong and provide other information I am missing.
