Backup Windows System Folders
I WISH Windows had a way to keep backup copies of the Windows Boot Folders.
As a tech guy, people come to me all the time with their computer problems, and one of the most common problems is a system that won't boot because of a corrupt Windows system folder.
Wouldn't it be great if Microsoft kept a second copy of the entire Windows system folder from a snapshot taken when the system was working? The process would be pretty simple to implement. Basically, when you install a fresh copy of Windows, it creates two exact copies of the System folder. As you install new programs and drivers, those changes are only done to the "current" version.
If the system boots okay, those changes are then mirrored to the backup version, but if there is a problem, the system can boot from the prior version. There is a similar option in Windows today, but it only has the ability to revert back to a prior version of the registry settings, so it can't undo more complex changes to the Windows folder.
