    I had it disabled in 8.1 and after the upgrade to 10, it was enabled again. I have since disabled it. It is not disabled by default.

    Except when it is.
    I've done a couple of clean installs in the last few days, and had to switch it on manually both times.

    Maybe it's a case of the sync function applying a setting you have or had on another 8.1 or 10 machine. That can happen if you log in with a MS account. I had sync also turned off in 8.1 so my setting never got saved in the cloud. I believe all the sync options are turned on by default in Win 10.

    I turned System restore off after my 10 upgrade where it defaulted to on and then again after the cumulative update on the 5th turned it back on.

    I have never had to use it so I always turn it off. It takes up space and the files can not be defragmented by the defrag program I use which is Puran. I've also read about many instances where System restore fails to fix a problem or even causes additional problems. Restoring a full system Image is a better way to go.

    I had it turned on in 7 and it was disabled after the upgrade.

    I generally install with a local account and not an MS Account. If it was trying to sync, it wouldn't find anything - perhaps why mine are generally switched off?

    Ever notice most of the people with problems are using laptops/notebooks with little to no support for Win 10?

    I agree with your analysis. I have 61 GB assigned to windows. After upgrading Windows (from 7 to 10) system protection was set on on my C:\ drive.

    Following an in-place upgrade of 10 it was turned off as there wasn't (presumably) enough space left. I turned it on using the GUI though as it seemed easier than a registry change.

    I also found the System Restore was turned off after the last W10 update, but why?
    Why should windows update turn it off?

    Wasn't on my system, just in Advanced Settings >> Startup and Recovery >> Automatically Restart was turned back on. I like to keep it off, so I can go to UEFI recovery options.
