Repair and Recovery Options 4:27-4:46 Next, let's discuss some advanced system repair and recovery options for Windows 8 and Windows 10 systems. Most of the options we've discussed in this lesson, such as system restore, are also available in earlier versions of Windows. However, in Windows 8 and Windows 10, there are several additional recovery environment options that you need to be familiar with. System Refresh 4:47-5:59 For example, on Windows 8, you can refresh the system. If a Windows system won't boot properly,the process you should follow to fix it, generally speaking, should be as follows. First, try to fix the problem by running the startup repair option. If that doesn't work, try reverting the system to a prior restore point. If that doesn't work, then the next thing you can try is a system refresh. By selecting refresh, the recovery environment will reinstall a clean copy of Windows 8 on your system. However, during the refresh process, the user account data, Windows configuration settingsand Windows Store apps installed on the system will be retained. When you refresh the system, all data to be preserved is copied to a reserved portion of the hard disk drive. Windows 8 will then be reinstalled. Once done, all of the data that was preserved will be restored to the new system. In order for this process to work, there needs to be adequate free space on the hard disk drive to store all of the information to be preserved. Also, the refresh process doesn't preserve desktop applications that may be installed on the system, only Windows Store apps. The desktop apps will have to be manually reinstalled after the refresh is complete.

System Reset 6:00-6:38 The refresh option is only available on the Windows 8 systems. However, both Windows 8 and Windows 10 include an option to reset the system. The way this option works is slightly different on each operating system. On Windows 8, this option completely resets your computer system. It will completely erase the hard disk drive. All user data and applications will be erased and a fresh Windows 8 image will be installed on the hard disk drive. On Windows 10, this option can be configured to function like either a refresh or a reset on Windows 8. You can choose to either have user data and Windows Store apps preserved or you can choose to have them erased. Summary 6:39-6:48 In this lesson, we discussed system repair and recovery options for Windows 8 and Windows 10 systems. We looked at system restore, the Windows recovery environment and refresh or reset installations. Using Windows System Recovery Tools 0:00-0:31 In this demonstration, we're going to look at some Windows recovery options you can use when the Windows system itself is behaving very badly, to the point where the system is becoming unusable.

    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.
