  • You can restore a single file, folder, or an entire drive’s worth of files/folders.
  • You can also choose to restore files to their original locations or to a different location.
  • If the drive your operating system resides on fails or the computer fails for any reason, you can use a system image on the same machine (replacing the hardware that caused the failure) or another machine to get your users back up and running as quickly as possible.
  • Many manufacturers also include recovery tools on a special partition or volume on the primary hard disk, and provide a graphical user interface to access the tools.
  • Use a system image you created earlier to recover your computer . Choose this option if you have a system image; this option re-installs your applications and system settings also. If you do not have a system image backup, choose the Reinstall Windows option. Reinstall Windows (requires Windows installation disc) . This option sets the machine back to ground zero (before you installed any applications or created any folders/files). If you have a backup, you can reinstall Windows and then restore your files from a backup.
