Just curious if the Reset Batch file from Windows 10 tutorial will work with Windows 11. Or, is there a new Reset Backup batch file for Windows 11? TIA

Please post the tutorial link so that we can see what is meant by reset batch file.

Did you want to perform a reset save files or reset save files equivalent and move:
Windows 11 > windows 11 or windows 10?

@Ghot

Thank you. I tried that file on Windows 11 as Administrator and it reset the Interface perfectly, just like it did on Windows 10.

When I help people I always tell them it's easier and more reliable to use just the System Image choice and to backup their personal files manually.

Even Microsoft recommend that we avoid Windows backup and Restore.


Most of us here use Macrium Reflect...

I have another backup program that I like. I use both Microsoft's Backup and 'Paragon Hard Disk Manager 17'. It's a one-time-license for three stations. It is the last edition that does not require an annual subscription. Plus, it does way more than just backup drives. I highly recommend it.

I use Macrium Free when I clone a person's HDD to an SSD. It works great for that too.
