by Techchef Data Recovery Techchef Data Recovery
It is important to update windows to remove all the bugs and issues related to outdated versions. However, installing windows updates can be quite risky and result in a system crash, data loss, an unbootable computer, and more. 

This surely happens due to loopholes while updating windows. Try these eight ways that prevent data loss after updating windows.

1. Manual restore point

System restore points help to restore the windows files to the previous versions. For this, you need to create restore points manually. 

2. Ensure free disk space

New updates in windows certainly need free space to install and download all the files. You would need at least 20% free space to install a new Windows update; otherwise, the windows installation will fail halfway.

3. Create data backup

You always have a data backup ready to ensure your files are with you when the Windows system crashes while updating.

4. Check power supply

You would need to check a strong and stable power supply to eradicate problems while updating windows. 

The system can crash or experience data loss while windows update if there’s an unstable power supply. 

5. Disable the antivirus tool

Disabling the antivirus tool in a computer that is having windows update installation would work better. Antivirus blocks activities such as windows update, so you will need to disable it. 

6. Disable automatic update

To prevent abrupt data loss or system crashes, disabling automatic windows updates would be great. 

7. Install windows updates one by one

You don’t need to install windows all at once. There are more chances of failure in batch windows updates than individual updates. 

Restart Windows after installation

Restart Windows after you have individually installed windows updates. At times, some computers won’t start as normal, so restarting the system would work. 


Trying these eight solutions would help you prevent data loss after windows update installation. Also, it would ensure that the windows updates installation is safe and will improve the performance of your computer without any failure.
