Okay, you’ve bought or built yourself a nice new shiny computer system..
Now, how do you go about protecting yourself from any losing data, music, pictures, or videos?
That’s right, you make backups. Of the data. Of the family photos..
(Please make backups!)
But what do you do when your Windows 10 gets corrupted and won’t even boot?
That’s easy.. just boot into the other Windows 10 you installed on another drive!
Okay, when you build (or buy) a new computer, spend a few more dollars and buy a second drive or two. A single 1 TB drive is easily less than $50 these days. However many drives you want to add into your shiny new system (and that computer is capable of connecting drives). You can even install and run Windows from a USB external drive.
And install your legit Windows 10 onto each drive. That’s right, install once per drive.
You don’t have to play games on these drives, or run any software you don’t need. You just want the basic Windows 10 Operating System. Oh, and maybe let each OS run Windows Update every few weeks. Just not all on the same day or week, lol.
What this does is adds more options to the Windows Boot Menu screen. (You can set your “real” OS to boot by default with a timer, btw.)
And what this allows you to do is still access your files, documents, or anything you have stored on each drive.
Even if the “real” OS fails out on you. Have fun with your newfound resiliency!
