Recommended Posts

I am familiar with this information. Thank You. My question was about making the back up on USB. I am satisfied with Windows 10 and as mentioned have already deleted the Windows/Old folder. A backup would be Windows 10 only.

Hi there! I see guests clicking on this thread, so I thought I would answer this even though it is very old. Yes @cryominute You should create a back up image of your OS and everyone clicking on this thread should be creating a back up image of their OS. There are several good freeware imaging programs. I prefer Macrium Reflect. I have been using it for years and it has saved me many times. I just used it yesterday after my W10 OS got corrupted. I'm right back where I was when I created the image. Life is good!xD You will find some amusing answers from MS forum in the link below about this panther-directory.
