Re­store from backup

Windows Help & Advice - - WINDOWS 10 OCTOBER 2018 UPDATE REVEALED -

If, in fu­ture, you run into the prob­lem of miss­ing fold­ers af­ter in­stalling a fea­ture up­date, you’ll be able to re­store them from your backup tool – if you’re us­ing File His­tory, nav­i­gate to C:\Users\{User­name} in File Ex­plorer, then open each folder in turn (such as Doc­u­ments) and click the His­tory but­ton to see what’s re­cov­er­able. In most cases, the lat­est ver­sion of the files dis­played are the ones you want – sim­ply click the green but­ton at the bot­tom to re­store them.

In the case of a drive im­age, If you use Macrium, sim­ply dou­ble-click the backup file in File Ex­plorer to mount it as a vir­tual drive, then copy the miss­ing files back from the Users\{User­name} folder on that mounted drive to your PC’s drive; If you’re us­ing Paragon, se­lect the backup in the main pro­gram, roll the mouse over the first dash sym­bol to the left of the Backup time­line clock and click Ex­plore on the pop-up menu. You can then browse your backup for the miss­ing files (again, look un­der C:\Users\{Your user­name}) and re­store them di­rectly from there.

If you have a re­cent backup, restor­ing files deleted by the Oc­to­ber 2018 Up­date is a rel­a­tively straight­for­ward task.
