Back Up Data to Prevent File Loss due to System Restore

First, you should understand that System Restore is indeed different from Windows backup. System Restore is based on a previously created Windows restore point, which brings your Windows system back to a previous state before the system crashes or even stops working. However, it still affects some of your later saved files on Windows PC.

  • System Restore doesn't save copies of your personal files nor newly installed apps and programs.
  • Although it's claimed that System Restore will not delete or replace any of your personal files, it still overwrites your whole system partition with the restore point. 
  • Apps installed after the restore point will also be uninstalled. 

This will surely result in file loss issue in Windows 7, 8 and 10. So the best choice to prevent data loss from System Restore is to create a full backup of your Windows system and essential data in advance. Third-party free backup software like EaseUS Todo Backup Free will be able to help.
