Re: Windows backup and restore


It references Windows 7 because the utility was carried forward from Windows 7 and is not being maintained.  In fact it's been deprecated, and Microsoft recommends that a third-party backup & recovery tool be used.  Once a function is deprecated you have no idea when it might suddenly be removed, which is no position you want to be in when it comes to backup and restore functionality. Microsoft Announcement of Deprecated Features, including SIB [Backup and Restore (Windows 7), V1709]

I can't even count the number of topics in the archive that are less than a year old, let alone those from the last 2 or 3 years, that cover backup and restore options extensively.
