    Questions before I upgrade to Windows 10

    Iím going to be upgrading my Windows 7 Pro 32-bit desktop to Windows 10 on/about Sept 1
    --- The reason Iím waiting until then is because I want to see how Windows Updates go well within the 30 day period to revert back to Windows 7 if I donít like what I see.

    I have the following questions

    Is this equivalent to a System Repair disc as in Windows 7?
    Recovery Drive - Create in Windows 10
    http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html
    Creates a bootable recovery drive that only boots to advanced startup options to help troubleshoot and recover Windows 10.

    Does Windows 10 have a built in System Image backup similar to Windows 7?
    I havenít been able to find that information

    Whenever I take on a computer and/or new OS I like to create the equivalent of a system repair disc and system image backup in its pristine state.

    Windows 10 has both Create a system image and Create a system repair disc in Control Panel under Backup and Restore (Windows7).

    System repair disc can only use CD/DVD whereas Recovery Drive can only use a USB flash drive.

    Backup and Restore (Windows7)
    That's what confused me when I went to make a repair disc for Win 10.

    I always use 3rd party tools for image creation, more flexible.

    cheers, Paul

    Will the iso file available today via the Media Creation Tool be the same as the one that would be downloaded two months from now? That is to say will it contain the latest updates?

    I use Macrium Reflect on one of my computers and the Windows 7 Create a system image on my other computer so I can keep track of what it does for when I get phone calls about backup issues. When I help out others I usually show them how to use the built in system image backup but I am in favor of 3rd party programs myself.
