However, often times with a local backup, which is what most manufacturers use, the separate restore partition might be months or even years old.
Even if it is fairly up-to-date, the restoring process itself is not the most pleasant one.
Fortunately, Microsoft has finally decided that they need to fix this issue with a cloud solution. The company is adding new versions of Windows 10 an option to make a restoration from a cloud backup.
However, in addition to having the new version of Windows 10, the manufacturer has to support this option too with drivers. As it seems like a no-brainer for all manufacturers, we expect it to be widely available as soon as Microsoft releases it.
This is one the features that Apple's macOS already has, and Windows dearly needs.
