If any changes made to the HD partitioning etc were done it does not work anymore. If the OS is updated it may be affected if you went from win 8 to Win 10. I am not sure as once I have everything working I create my own image backups as required. It cannot be relied on. Win 10 has a Cleanup of the OS Tool to reinstall and updated without and data or application loss and is the best fix solution in the event of a major problem that you can't figure out.
