Microsoft is busy on a getting into a new backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices that would lead to reduced size in OneDrive.
Yet, the first build that it is bringing known as the recently-released 14371 and as per Microsoft, there are some prominent issues from which everyone should be aware for installing this because it could affect the way you back up and restore Windows phones.
Today,in an announcement,head of the Windows Insider program,Dona Sarkar said that If you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won’t restore and remain the default Start layout.
Dona Sarkar further added that your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn’t overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.
Refinement in Next Builds
The next build should be addressed all these known bugs particularly because Windows 10 Mobile is all about performance improvements at the moment, as Microsoft is giving the final touches to the Anniversary Update before the big July launch.
As for the new backup format, this comes in handy to users, especially because this way their devices can easily be backed up and restore faster due to the reduced size. Most of the smartphone users backing up their devices these days, so it’s significant for Windows 10 Mobile to have a reliable solution which is effective in this regard and is expected to work properly.
Moreover, for the known issues, it’s also important to mention that the most recent build includes some Wi-Fi disconnect problems as well, and a number of Windows Phone devices upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile also noted to have decreased the battery life, including Lumia, 1520,930 and 830.
