Windows 365 Point-in-Time Restore

Windows 365 point-in-time restore lets an administrator restore a Cloud PC to the exact state it was at an earlier point in time.

You can choose to save short-term restore points every 4, 6, 12, 16, or 24 hours. Each Cloud PC has 10 restore points saved at the intervals that you define in the user settings. For example, if you chose four hour intervals, a Cloud PC has 10 restore points spread out every four hours over the last 40 hours. Admins can also give end users permission to restore their own Cloud PCs. See Windows 365 - User Settings Policies for details.

To restore a Cloud PC:

  1. Navigate to Endpoints > Windows 365.

  2. Select the Cloud PCs tab.

  3. Locate the Cloud PC that you wish to restore.

  4. From the action menu, select Restore.

    Warning: Any data saved between the selected restore point and now will be lost.

  5. In the pop-up confirmation window, enter the following information:

    • Select restore point: From the drop-down list, select the desired restore point.

    • Confirm: Type CONFIRM in all upper case

  6. Once you have entered all the required information, select OK.

    The restore process starts. You can follow its progress in the Cloud PCs Tasks window.
