Defender prevents system restore

    I had the same problem and quite by accident stumbled across a 'work around'. My system would resolutely fail to restore automatic restore points but seems to restore manually set restore points. Have done 3 times so far.
    Previously I had found that by the time the restore was finished Defender real time protection had switched back on so I don't know whether that was the reason auto restore points didn't work? I'd be interested if this worked for anyone else.

    I solved the issue by going back to a Macrium image, made 3 weeks ago. System restore works again. What caused the issue will probably never be found.
    I'm glad to see MR system image backup solved your issue.
    --- Unfortunately as you mentioned there are times the cause of an issue isn't known.

    I do MRF system image backups on a monthly basis during the week prior to the 1st Tue update of the upcoming month.
    I also use SR to record a log of what I consider an important event such as when my 1709 (OS Build 16299.371) was installed.
    Fortunately I haven't had to restore anything since upgrading to Windows 10 but I want to be ready in case something does go wrong.
