    Fall Update - Restore Points Turned Off

    The fall update removes all restore points - cannot restore to prior to update.

    Also, it turns off protection settings in CP/System Protection/Configure. You will have to press button to turn on system protection and assign disk space for restore points. Would probably be a good idea to do this first thing after Fall Update completes and create an initial restore point.

    Well, I would agree with MS that the restore points for the old build should be deleted for obvious reasons.

    But I totally disagree with MS in that they have overidden my choice to have restore points enabled. Without warning.

    (And to be consistent with that, the user should really be advised to make an image backup prior to this (kind of) update. Sorry, upgrade).

    Mine wasn't turned off? After a clean install it was enabled for my Windows drive and turned off for my Data drive. Just the way I left it before doing my clean install.
