This tool makes it easier to get back to or restore previous Windows 7/8 after Windows 10 upgrade. After the upgrade to Windows 10, the OS itself offers the option in ‘Recovery’ of ‘Settings’ to ‘Go back to Windows 7’ (or Windows 8).
There are system imaging tools available on the internet that takes full image of system drive and restores when you needed. EASEUS has come up with a special free tool for the present situation called ‘EaseUs System GoBack Free’ as the name says it’s free to use.
Using EaseUs System GoBack Free
Before upgrade, run System GoBack Free on Windows 7 or 8 system that you’re going to upgrade to Windows 10. Before starting the backup process, ensure location it refers at the bottom of its program window has enough space (you can’t change it though, read at the bottom as it’s the drawback of the program).
When you click ‘Backup System’, the tool creates an image of the OS in PBD format. Note: Only this app can open this type of file.
After the upgrade, if you don’t like Windows 10 (reasons could be any), install and run System GoBack Free, it auto detects the backup file created path (not detected correctly in our case and no way to choose the drive to restore, same in the case of backup also), click ‘Go Back’. The tool will restore your PC to a previous Windows OS.
Pros: One click backup and restore solution.
Cons: Not reliable, doesn’t allow user to choose the backup or restore location.
Try this: backup your system using this tool, if it fails to restore, fall back to Windows built-in mechanism. We expect EaseUs to improve this tool to work flawlessly in the future.
