Enabling recovery from the cloud

Enabling recovery from the cloud

Windows 10 S Mode is a version of Windows 10 that ships with certain devices, like the Surface Go, and only allows users to download apps through the Microsoft Store, and not from websites.

In an attempt to refresh the way users reset their PCs, Microsoft is testing a way to facilitate Cloud-based downloading of the Windows 10 operating system (OS).While the "Cloud download" feature has not been made available for public testing as yet, it would appear on devices when testers boot a Windows machine in failed state. "Select More. Downloads and updates Get updates", a member of the Microsoft Surface Team explains.

Microsoft has revealed an upcoming system by which Windows 10 will be able to reinstall itself over the internet, without the need to download a disc image - a feature Apple's macOS already offers and which was previously only available on Microsoft's own Surface devices. Mac users can quickly restore their Macs from the cloud - without much effort.


There are reports that some people are getting stuck in Windows 10 S Mode and are unable to upgrade to the full version of Windows 10. As the tech industry aggressively adopts the cloud platform, Microsoft is putting itself right in the middle of the action with this referenced "Cloud download" feature. This new feature doesn't replace any existing recovery methods but instead, will sit alongside them - pushing more users to create backups and upload a copy to the cloud. The build is now available to Fast ring members of the Windows Insider Program; it will reach Slow ring members later.

Whereas the two operating systems were almost neck-and-neck five months ago, Windows now sits at 48.86 percent, compared to Windows 7 at 31.83 percent. In the first case, the user will get Windows 10, which will have to set "from scratch", and the second - all the settings and applications drivers will be restored automatically. It will be released for everyone in Spring 2020, i.e March to June next year.

As we mentioned earlier, the new feature is similar to Apple's macOS reinstalls.
