Summary 8:25-8:41 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about configuring File History, we talked about what File History does, we looked at enabling File History on a Windows 10 system, we then looked at configuring File History in Control Panel on a Windows 10 system, and then we ended this demonstration by talking about how to configure File History using the Settings app on a Windows 10 system. System Protection 0:00-1:10 Let's discuss system protection. System protection is a feature that is available in Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. It's always possible that the installation of a new application or driver could cause a Windows system to become unstable and not work properly. Obviously your first recovery step should be to either uninstall the application or roll back the driver. However, if neither of these options solves the problem, you can roll back to a previous system restore point. A restore point can be used to restore system files and configuration settings. On Windows, system protection regularly creates and saves information about your system files and settings. On Windows 7, it also saves previous versions of data files that have been modified. This allows you to restore previous versions of files that have been deleted or corrupted in some way. On Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, previous versions of files are not kept in restore points. The file history feature is used to back up user data instead on these newer versions of Windows. However, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 still use restore points to store system state information and configuration settings. Restore Point Creation 1:11-1:43 Restore points are created prior to the occurrence of significant system events, such as the installation of a new application or device driver. They are also created automatically once a week if no other restore points were created in the preceding seven days.

Restore points can also be created manually. This may be useful if you are about to implement a resolution to a problem on the system and you are unsure about what effect it will have. Manually creating a restore point allows you the option of reverting the system to the state it was immediatelybefore you implemented the fix just in case it doesn't work out or causes additional problems. Data Saved in Restore Points 1:44-2:22 System restore points are different from system backups. They contain only limited system information. For example, you can't use a restore point to perform a complete system restoration.You must use a system image backup to do that. System protection backs up and saves in a restore point: Registry information User profiles and Windows system files. Restoring the system's state from a restore point does not affect data files. For example, if a user has created a spreadsheet file in her documents folder and you use the system protection to revert the system to a prior state, the spreadsheet file will not be affected, even it was created after the restore point was originally created.

    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.
