As part of the company’s plan against 2020, Microsoft is reportedly planning to launch a cloud-based recovery alternative for its Windows PCs which will be a replacement (based on choice) for the ‘Recycle Bin’.
Of course, While deleting is not the only way of losing documents, in some cases, you may have noticed that there is an issue with your software which will require you to restore you PC; doing so may lead to an unwanted loss of information, especially those that you probably didn’t move to another storage.
In some other cases, users have to dig up their original Windows installation media, which may or may not be buried deep in a pile of junk somewhere in your house.
Now, to put an end to these several inconveniences, Microsoft is reportedly working on a solution that will launch sometimes in 2020- a “cloud recovery’ option for Windows 10 customers. If something should go wrong with your PC, this tool would let you either reset your system locally (using the previously-mentioned installation media), or rely on a “cloud download.”
According to Techspot, “the cloud download option is not only great for convenience (if you’ve lost your original system image), but as other outlets speculate, it could also save you some update time. After all, it would make sense for a cloud download to grab the latest version of Windows 10 from Microsoft’s servers instead of the outdated version that likely shipped on your installation disc or USB.”
That been said, a recovery option that is still underway may not be the perfect solution for the persisting issue of losing data by the time it arrives, however, it will help in away. Take for instance, If your computer is in particularly bad shape, or if you simply can’t access the internet, cloud backups won’t do you much good. Still, it’ll be a nice alternative for anyone who can take advantage of it.
