As new updates of Windows 10 coming out, a lot of Windows users will feel like to update to the latest version, either in the purpose of going after trends or of professional testing. Unfortunately, problems/accidents always come into sight when you upgrade the system to the new version of Windows 10, or when you reinstall the system. Something like when you wake up in the morning to check if the updates have finished in a perfect shape, with right booting and everything remaining untouched on your hard drive, but only to find out it’s so hard to believe as if you were still dreaming, that the system could never boot up! Or for so many times that we have found the updating or reinstalling process just stuck at 90%, and never go forward. But when you realize all these, it is just a little bit late. You’re now probably cannot get access to your data on the hard drive.
That’s why we need to backup everything on the hard drive before doing anything “dangerous”.
