Leo’s deep dive into the built into the Windows back up solution – is not all positive.–PC Pitstop.
Good and Bad of Windows Backup
By Leo Notenboom
Windows 8.1 changed its included backup program. A tiny bit for the better, and a lot for the worse. I wrote a book on Windows 8.1 backup, but I’d rather you did something else.
I’m in the process of finishing up my Windows 8.1 backup book, Saved! Backing Up With Windows 8 Backup. It’s in editing as I type this, and I’ll soon be putting the finishing touches on the companion videos. I hope to have it available within a couple of weeks.
It’s an important book because I know that many people don’t want to shell out more money for my standard recommendation for backing up, Macrium Reflect. If there’s backup software already in Windows they’d prefer to just use that … for free.
The problem is I learned quite a bit about Windows 8.1′s backup as I researched and wrote the book.
And not all of it was good.
