Windows 9 To Allow Cloud-Based System Image Back-Ups

/ 3 years ago


Remembering to backup your operating system is something 90% of us probably forget to do, with Windows 9 that could change. Famous Windows leaker WZOR has explained that Windows 9 will featured a cloud-based backup system. Windows 9 will automatically backup images of your system’s OS to your OneDrive account meaning should your OS drive ever suffer damage or your OS becomes irrecoverably damaged, you can just download your most recent OS image from your OneDrive account and apply it to your current boot drive, or a new boot drive if your last one broke-down, and you’re good to go. This feature certainly makes sense from Microsoft’s perspective as they have already integrated OneDrive into Windows 8.X and furthermore this would act as a great opportunity for Microsoft to expand OneDrive with even more users.

What do you think about an integrated cloud backup system? Good idea or a security risk?

    I don’t give a damn as long as it’s optional. It’s there for people who want to make use of it or don’t mind their data being shared or read but I won’t use it.

    Great way to eat up those data caps and get charged $100s in overage fees!
