Windows 10 to soon feature cloud restoring

Windows 10 to soon feature cloud restoring
One of the worst nightmares of a Windows users is having the system bricked. You'll have to either reinstall Windows or, if you are lucky enough, restore it via backup.

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.
