Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18970 (20H1) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. Besides bug fixes, this future version of Windows 10 packs some new features including a new tablet experience for 2-in-1 convertible PCs and a cloud download recovery option.
Introducing a new Reset this PC option–Cloud Download
Reset this PC now provides users a new choice to download Windows or use local reinstall. Previously, Reset this PC was only able to do a local reinstall and would build a new Windows installation from existing Windows files. When this feature was introduced in Windows 10 version 1507, it provided the advantage of enabling Windows to be recoverable without requiring extra disk space to store a compressed, backup copy of Windows in a hidden partition. We’ve heard feedback that some of you would prefer to use your high-speed internet connection to speed up this process by just downloading Windows.
