从 and 自从 are both prepositions and they both indicate a starting point. Let's take a look at their differences:
1. 从 precedes a time, a place, a certain range, or the starting point of something that is developing; while 自从 only precedes a time.
2. When used before a time, 从 can be followed by a time in the future or in the past; 自从 can only be used before a time in the past.
