how does one prepare for a computer system failure?
Most of my data is on a separate partition on the drive (and also on the cloud) and I'm pretty impatient so I just decided to reinstall Windows as the fastest way to get back online.
Now I know that I should turn on the restore point option. What else should I have done?
I'm running Windows 10 Pro and I have a spare HDD that I could fit an entire image of my system. TIA
