Hi dingdong,
 
I believe windows 10 uses the old Backup and Restore feature from windows 7 which is why it is called Backup and Restore(Windows 7)
 
For more information you can have a look at this link.

Neither me, because they're so annoying I have to spit at Microsoft's face.

Windows 10 is not very mature right now.

Windows 10 is not very mature right now.

 

While this is true, it's significantly more stable now than it was when it was first released.

I don't remember where I read this, but I believe it uses the Windows 7 Backup & Restore, so it's basically like saying what version of Backup & Restore it's using.

 

I have noticed that all computers that are Win 8+ say it.

Also press the Start button > Settings > Update & Recovery > Check for Updates. If you have an MS account make sure to sign in to get the latest build.

 

PS: "Settings" is right there on top of power when you press the start button.
