Good if the accident is out.
In Windows 10 Preview with build version 18970, Microsoft has enabled the new feature that we mentioned in this article in August.
The feature allows you to recover Windows by downloading an OS from the cloud. By the way, this is a feature that MacOS has had for years.
This is what Microsoft writes about the feature:
“Resetting your PC now offers users a new choice to download Windows or use local reinstallation. Previously, Reset PC was only able to do a local reinstall and would build a new Windows installation from existing Windows files. When this feature was introduced in Windows 10 1507, it offered the advantage of enabling Windows to re-install without the need for additional disk space to store a compressed backup copy of Windows on a hidden partition. We listened to your feedback that some of you would prefer to use a high-speed Internet connection to speed up this process by just downloading Windows. ”
Losing the apps
If you choose to install Windows from the cloud, you will lose all the apps you have installed. If you select the "clear all" option, your personal files will also disappear.
When you download Windows from the cloud, you get the same build version that was already installed.
Note that the feature is still in beta, so you may want to wait for the official launch before using it.
