    The whole thing is that the wizards at Microsoft who gave us Windows 10 are very quiet about the whole sorry episode.
    Perhaps they can only cause this problem but cannot put things right!
    Perhaps they don't make programmers like they used to!

    Well Tom, the programmers at MS gain enough to perform at their best.

    As an example, for months i do not have my Homegroup back and i know by experience that to do so, i always needs to start from scratch.

    Do not want to do that. I mentionned this in the feedback several times at MS, no reply, no solution.

    Perhaps if you are living in the US, you can bring this up to the top honchos in Microsoft.
    They shouldn't be abandoning their users and leave them in the lurch like this!!!

    I noticed that restore points can be very volatile. That's why I make images. Those I can control myself.

    wptski I don’t do dual booting but I did some research on your issue
    There are plenty of ideas but I haven’t seen a single solution yet for native usage.
    When you say
    “I think that happened after I created an ISO from the ESD file using the well known converter.”
    Does that mean that maintaining system restore points on each one of the two OS’s were not an issue before then?

    marymmcc check your Disk Space Usage and Virtual Memory
    If those settings are ok for you, consider Delete all restore points for this drive to start over and see what happens.
    Do you use any optimization programs that maintain backup information on your computer?

    My disk space usage 25g and virtual memory settings are OK (6g swap and 4g memory). I do not have restore points to delete. Even when I manually create a point, it disappears if I create another.

    Using some defrag programs has been known to cause restore points to vanish as may some cleaning tools.

    Is your allocated space too small?

    Note: I currently have 14 in 6Gb. (I don't know if that leaves room for more).

    After latest windows 10 update I spotted same issue when tried to use restore point. Was someone lucky to figure out solution ?
    Also I can´t see option for backing up in disk properties as used to. The one when you right click disk and select tools tab, makes me sad.
