Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This is a long discussion but let me explain: Recently, I finally decided to try Win 11 (big mistake). After two days I tried to go back to Win 10. I went through all the steps but at the end it said my computer needed a repair. So I had to RESET my computer (595 Pavillion) to April of 2019 with a usb recovery drive that I created when comp was new. I was not overly concerned because I had Backed up my System Image with EaseUS Todo each week to an external HD. But then I found out that for some reason  the backup HD would not boot. So when  I copied the backup to my C drive I could not boot my computer would not boot. You guessed it, I had toRESET my computer again. HELP; Is there any way I can make my Backup drive bootable? Please and Thank You!

hi

the problem is that we don't know more about your backup drive
you say, simply, that it does not start any more...
Does the hdd drive still work, maybe it doesn't?
Tried a different hdd player, make a backup and test

The drive itself will work, it, apparently, just does not have a bootable track. Thanks for the reply, I do appreciate it.
