We have come to know that Microsoft is working on a new feature for Windows 10 Redstone. OneDrive, the cloud storage and sync service bundled into Windows 10, will allow you soon to backup your personal preferences and data to the cloud. This new option will reach Windows 10 with the Redstone update, and possibly, the placeholders feature may also make a return.
This information comes from Thurrott.com, the famous Windows-focused website. They report that these OneDrive features were spotted in Windows 10 build 14278. This is an older Insider build, which was not released to the public.
How to back up to One Drive in Windows 10.
The new option is accessible from the Settings app:
- You need to open the Settings app.
- Then navigate to Update & Security -> Backup.
- The following page will be opened:
There, the user will be able to turn on/off OneDrive backups for apps, passwords, settings and accounts. Remember that Windows 8.1 also comes with a feature to sync some settings, and upload your camera roll photos and videos to OneDrive. It is not known how much different the OneDrive backup and sync experience in Windows 10 will be compared to Windows 8.1.
Windows 10 Mobile has the same option. It can be found in the same location of the Settings app. Credits: Thurrott.
