    Repair Install!

    Hi I think I may have posted some thing similar to this; but would like to hear your comments, and if you have tried this, and did it work as advertised by Brink!

    Refresh?Reset

    The options above are great for what they are intended for, but you could also do a repair install of Windows 10 by performing an in-place upgrade without losing anything other than all installed Windows Updates.

    Although I don't doubt the article, Brink is well known and respected, but I personally can't foresee the need...

    A back up image of your OS is the best friend you will ever have!
    Far less complicated, not to mention that an image recovery takes only a fraction of the time.

    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    Build your own system; get everything you want and nothing you don't.
    Latest Build:
    ASUS X99 Deluxe, Core i7-5960X, Corsair Hydro H100i, Plextor M6e 256GB M.2 SSD, Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum 32GB DDR4@2666, W8.1 64 bit,
    EVGA GTX980, Seasonic PLATINUM-1000W PSU, MountainMods U2-UFO Case, and 7 other internal drives.

    Hi Clint! I agree 100%. Not all members will take the time to make a image. We both preach it, but only a few will listen. I have recommended Brinks Tutorials for years. One smart dude and respected on all help forums.
    The Refresh/Reset are good but if you want to save your programs, you might want to try this repair install. I will give it ago one of these days to see what it does. Was hoping maybe some members here had tried it and would comment.
    Thanks for your reply!
    PS I really like your signature. Sounds a little like mine> LOL
