Okay, I've inserted my Windows 10 installation DVD into my optical drive, so at this point I'm going to shut the system down, restart it, and this time instead of booting off of the C: Drive into Windows, I'm going to boot off of my optical disk instead, so I've booted off of the Windows 10 installation DVD, so I'm going to click Next in the first screen, but then instead of clicking Install Now, I'm going to click on Repair Your Computer. Now we have the option to turn off the PC, continue and boot Windows 10, or troubleshoot, which is what we want to do, and we want to go to Advanced Options, and then we can click on System Restore. Note that this will allow us to use a restore point already taken on the PC, to restore Windows to a prior state. Choose the Windows 10 target operating system, and then we see the exact same screen that we saw from within Windows, that allows us to select a restore point that we want to jump back to. This is the restore point that we previously reverted to. Now notice that when we did that, something very interesting occurred. Another restore point was automatically created for us before we reverted that way if for some reason we want to bring the system back to the state it was in before we reverted, we can do so. We just click on it, click Next, click Finish, click Yes, and it will start the restore process, so essentially what I'm doing here, is instead of reverting to a point back in time, I'm actually jumping forward in time to a later system state. Summary 12:49-13:08 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about using System Restore points. We talked about how to configure system protection on a hard drive and a Windows system. We then talked about how to manually create a restore point. We looked at restoring a restore point from within Windows and then we talked about how to revert to restore point, from within the recovery environment. Using Previous Versions 0:00-0:18 In this demonstration, we're going to spend some time working with Previous Versions in Windows 7. Now, be aware that this functionality is only available in Windows 7. It's been replaced by File Historyin Windows 8 and in Windows 10. What is Previous Versions 0:19-1:20 Previous Versions performs a similar function to File History and that allows you to revert a file in the Windows file system to a previous state. Now before we get going, I need to point out that the Previous Versions feature in Windows 7 is sometimes called a "shadow copy". If you hear the word shadow copy we're talking about the same thing. Now, before you can use the Previous Versions feature you first have to enable it on the volumes where the files you want to protect reside. And this is done using System Protection. Let's go down here to the Start button and let's right click on Computer and go to Properties. Notice this takes us in to Control Panel. We go in to System and Security and then in to System. We want to go to system protection right here. This takes us to the System Protection tab.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
