How to save the contents of Mini Intel Compute Stick

Jump to solution

Respectable Intel Community I want to make a question:

I would like to save the contents of Mini Intel Compute Stick to avoid to lose all the contents. I presume that I can save these contents using a usb key or an external dvd burner. I don't know if I must buy even an external program to do so or I can use the operating system that is installed inside ( Windows 8.1). That's why I ask the help of the Intel Community.

Thanks to all that want to answer to my question, I salute the Intel Community.

Windows 8.1 (and Windows 10 as well) do not support image backup of your system device. They have a feature, called File History, that backs up personal files to a secondary location, but nothing to support image backup. You need to look for a third-party tool that will provide you with this capability.

Sorry, blame Microsoft.

Gent.le N. Scott Pearson, after having read your answer, I gently ask you if you know an external program that can help me to save the configuration on my Mini Intel Compute Stick.

Thank you again for your kindness and speed in answering to my question, I salute you.

Oops, as I did a quick search for such a tool, I discovered that Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 actually do have such a capability...
