    A downside to creating restore points?


    I'm puzzled by Microsoft's decision to have System Protection off by default in Win10. Is there a downside to creating Restore Points (other than the disk space needed)?

    10 pro 64 clean install

    Maybe because 10 still has to many bugs that need to be fixed

    I don't know why it's turned off by default. I have it turned on and haven't noticed any problems.

    One of the first things I do is turn it on. I think this was a bad decision by MS. It's saved my butt several times so for the little space it uses its well worth having.
