How to Create a System Image in Windows 10

System images allow you to restore your system to the state it was in when you created the system image. The great thing about System Images is that they include everything from the moment you created it. Including:

  • Installed Programs and Apps
  • All documents and files

However, everything you did after the System Image will be lost! That’s a good thing to remember!
