Control Panel - Recovery - Create Recovery Drive.
Vital to do this.
In addition, recommend you download Macrium Reflect Free and read following (guide talks about backing up 8.1 before you upgrade but backing up 10 us the same). You will need an external usb of 32GB capacity to hold backup (or connect a usb hard drive). I know this works fine in a Linx8 and should work on others. This recovers apps and data as well as OS.You need to be registered to view this link, please log-in or register
found where you said to go, followed the instructions but it keeps freezing when copying system files then asking me then to restart, how long would it normally take to complete the process?
This is turning out to be a common bug. As you have installed 10, not such a big deal but a few fresh install is a pain because you need to install a load of drivers. Until bug is fixed, make an image backup with macrium reflect free.
Until somebody tries a restore with MRF I cant guarantee it will work (pretty sure it will though). Obviously, if it does not work, you can still revert to a fresh install.
You could try making a windows image backup as well (settings, updates and security, backup, and choose "Backup and Restore (Windows 7).
The name windows 7 refers to a backup system intoducred in Windows 7 but still works in W10. You will have to create a special recovery drive but due to age of app, it can only be done to dvd. You might be able to create it on another pc but might not work if using a 64 pc.
