How often you have used the System Restore Feature of Windows Operating System to find out that “your system can not be restored”. System restore feature in Windows indeed is a great feature to restore your system if something bad happens with it or if the system gets infected. But most often we find its not working due to one reason or other.
Also, it is not a full backup and restore solution for Your PC. If you keep important stuff on your system either professional or personal, you do need to have a proper backup solution for any emergency like Virus infection, corruption of operating system and many more.
