Many brand computers, either desktop or laptop, have built-in one key system backup & restore programs. With a special key or button on the machine, you are able to recover your system to the earlier right point once you created a system image file before. These programs developed by vendors are unique and can’t be used on other machines. Of course, this is a limitation.
Vendors’ integrated one click backup & restore tool has other disadvantages. Usually, the image file is stored in a factory recovery partition. If you resize the partition or merge partition or do other changes to this partition, the image file may be affected too then can’t be restored successfully. If you re-install the operating system, you could not recover successfully too. Because most OSes in brand computers are OEM so that change them may make things wrong.
On the contrary, third-party one key recovery won’t come into these situations generally. Because the app is standalone. Users own brand machines can install third-party one click backup software to take the place of original tool. Users own DIY machines can’t enjoy those vendors’ backup programs, but they can use professional third-party one key restore software instead. Besides full-scale backup software, we suggest users especially lazy people install one key backup software to protect their data. In this article, we highly recommend you to try AOMEI OneKey Recovery.
