Summary 9:33-9:56 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about how to use prior versions. We first talked about what prior versions is and how it works. Then we enabled System Protection on our E drive and created a restore point so that we would have prior versions of the files on the E drive that we could revert to. We then made changes to those files in the actual file system and then werestored previous versions of those files from the restore point that we created. The following tools can be used to protect a Windows system: Tool Description System Restore System Restore automatically takes snapshots (called restore points ) of your system. You can use these restore points to roll back your computer to a specific point-in-time configuration. Restore points take snapshots of system files, registry settings, program files, and other batch, script, or executable files. Restore points do not protect user data files. Automatic restore points are created in the background at regular intervals (by default once a day) as well as before configuration changes are made such as installing an application, installing an unsigned driver, or making other system changes. You can also manually create a restore point. When you restore your system to a restore point, previous settings are restored, while subsequent changes are removed. For example, any applications installed after the restore point are no longer installed. User data is not modified when restoring to a restore point. You cannot use a restore point to recover user data, and any changes made since a restore point are retained following the restore. System Restore works only on NTFS partitions. Restore points are automatically saved to the same disk using up to 15% of the available disk space by default. You can customize the amount of disk space used for restore points. System Restore is enabled automatically on the system hard drive where Windows is installed. Previous Versions Previous Versions (also called Shadow Copies) takes snapshots of files and folders and protects against accidental deletion or modification of user data files. Previous Versions is available in the Business, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions of Windows 7. It has been replaced by the File History feature in Windows 8 and Windows 10. It is turned on by default, and takes regular backups of files that have changed. Backups are saved on the same disk. Previous Versions does not protect against disk failure. Previous Versions works on entire folders as well as individual files. When you view a previous version of a file, it is opened in Read-only mode. You can browse through a previous version of a folder, navigating the directory structure.

    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.
