Advantages of Reboot to Restore Technology over Windows System Restore Utility

There a number of system restore software available as inbuilt programs with Windows 7 and later versions. These utility tools provide a number of recovery and restoration options to PC users.
Windows 7 System Restore
Restore Windows 7
The System Restore program in Windows 7 automatically creates a restore point every time a new application, driver, or OS update is installed. When the program is executed, the configuration is rolled back to the restore point without affecting the personal files. Windows 7 also has the option of Startup Repair, which is a tool for recovering damaged or missing files.
Windows 8 System Restore Software
Restore Windows 8
This Windows version has an additional option of ‘Refresh your PC,’ which resolves many performance-related issues without affecting personal user files. The options is available under the Recovery tools suite under Settings. If refreshing does not work, users can restore their PC to an earlier configuration using the inbuilt Windows restore software, which has the same functionality in all versions of the Windows OS. The ultimate recovery option in Windows 8 is to reset the PC to factory settings.
Windows 10 System Restore Software
Restore Windows 10
Users can either use Windows System Restore to rollback a previous configuration or reset their PC to factory defaults. Resetting the PC discards both system and personal files. Windows reset functionality comes with three options - “keep my files”, “remove everything”, and “restore factory settings”. ‘Keep my files’ option removes all user-made system changes and re-installs the OS while keeping personal files of users intact. Opting for the ‘Remove everything’ option deletes personal files as well, while ‘Restore factory settings’ reinstalls the OS version that was shipped with the device. The last option is, however, not available with all the PC.

Limitations of inbuilt System Restore Software in Windows OS

  • The advanced system restore programs of Windows require fair bit of technical knowledge to be executed.
  • Windows System Restore, in general, is a time-intensive process.
  • System Restore consumes significant disk space as it creates a restore point before every configuration change or at predefined intervals.
  • Users may lose their personal files if they overlook the backup option before initiating recovery.
  • If users upgrade to Windows 8.1 and have the recovery partition of Windows 8, resetting the PC rolls back Windows 8, making them upgrade again.
  • System Restore may leave traces of malware that are too sophisticated or elusive.

Benefits of Deep Freeze over Windows Restore Software

Deep Freeze allows users to restore the pristine system configuration with a simple reboot. Unlike Windows System Restore and Recovery, it does not require any technical expertise to be executed.
Deep Freeze is an instant restoration software that does not involve lengthy process. Users can simply reboot and restore the desired state of the system.
Since Deep Freeze locks-in the desired configuration once, it consumes only a small fraction of the memory and does not require an additional drive to perform restoration.
The Thaw Spaces, Thawed drive and Thawed state ensure that users’ personal files are safe even after the device rolls back after a reboot.
Deep Freeze makes the pristine configuration impenetrable, ensuring all types of malicious changes are completely removed after reboot.
Deep Freeze also allows scheduled reboot, which restores the pristine state even if there is no one to reboot the device.
Unlike Windows restore utility, Deep Freeze is compatible with all latest Windows editions, and functions optimally even with Windows system upgrades.
