    Strange! Is there any problem with the built-in system restore?
    Yeah, it often say it FAILS to restore for some reason.

    System Restore is inevitably limited to what it addresses. No way will it cover everything. Something like Rollback RX or Farstone Restoreit will, and offer fast restoration, but these are not the sort of thing everyone wants to deal with (and quite different to Macrium Reflect/Aomei Backupper/O&O DiskImage etc which are disk imaging programs providing periodic (scheduled or run by the user) snapshots of disks/partitions). (Ok, some also add backup features).

    For example, the current issue with a subset of the universal apps being corrupted by a Powershell command used to re-register them all is not corrected by System Restore from what I've read. (I experienced this myself, but used my disk image to recover and proceed).

    That is, the folder containing the universal apps is not protected by System Restore, apparently.
    So how do you personally restore your Windows? What do you use?

    The tutorial below can help show you how to do a system restore from a restore point.

    I use Aomei Backupper (the free version is fine, I have pro). I've tried various disk imaging programs from Acronis to O&O (and briefly Rollback RX - which is different- when there was a giveaway. It proved ok initially, then problematical).

    Many here use Macrium Reflect Free, a slightly cut down version of the pro. It's got some advanced features but doesn't do incremental backups, and the interface is rather more 'geeky'.

    Aomei Backupper offers both differential and incremental backups; both are reported as reliable, certainly A B has helped me enormously. All disk imaging products I've seen allow the images to be mounted and files/folders extracted, so it's a full backup as well as supporting partition/disk restoration.

    You need the boot disk and external storage media e.g. a large USB disk, or sthg via a LAN.

    One thing worth doing is using MS's disk management to allocate a drive letter to the external USB disk, if used, so the path to the backup is consistent each time that disk is plugged in.

    I also use System Restore, and one of Brink's scripts scheduled to create a daily restore point.

    I have heard people say that AOMEI just doesn't compare with Macrium in terms of speed. Your thoughts?

    So the Freeware AOMEI supports incremental backups and restores? Because the freeware Macrium does not

    Correct. Aomei's as fast as anything I've tried- but I've not use Macrium.
    Both are under active development.
