Hi! I'm curious if any one here has used any of the W10 recovery options. W10 has several ways to recover from mistakes. W10 has the old stand by Restore to a earlier time, but it has other ways to recover. I would like to hear what experiences members have had with the other recovery options. I have only used the restore to a earlier time. I haven't felt the need to try the others. Would like to hear your experiences if you have used any of them! Thanks for your replies!
