Build a more pow­er­ful re­pair disc

Windows Help & Advice - - WINDOWS 10 -

If you would like ad­di­tional re­pair op­tions when try­ing to fix your non-boot­ing Win­dows in­stal­la­tion, then visit www. laze­­soft-re­cov­ery­suite-free.html on a work­ing PC to down­load and in­stall the Laze­soft Re­cov­ery Suite Home Edi­tion. Launch the tool and cre­ate the re­cov­ery boot me­dia (us­ing a DVD or USB flash drive). This pro­vides four use­ful re­pair and res­cue tools.

Of th­ese, Pass­word Re­cov­ery can be used to more eas­ily re­set your lo­cal ac­count pass­words (see page 15), while the Disk Im­age & Clone tool en­ables you to take a fail-safe backup of the en­tire sys­tem drive be­fore at­tempt­ing re­pairs or wip­ing and re­in­stalling Win­dows from scratch. Data Re­cov­ery does what it says on the tin, but can also be used to copy reg­u­lar files from your stor­age drive too – use­ful if your user fold­ers are stored on the same par­ti­tion as Win­dows it­self and you don’t have a re­cent backup.

Fi­nally, Win­dows Re­cov­ery of­fers sev­eral ad­di­tional re­pair tools to those found in your orig­i­nal Win­dows in­stal­la­tion me­dia, in­clud­ing a one-click fix and a se­ries of tar­geted tools aimed at spe­cific boot prob­lems. The step-by-step guide on the op­po­site page re­veals how to ac­cess them.
