    I did a clean install of my system and I discovered very quickly that I can't rely on system restore any more. The restore failed blaming an anti-virus program and I did not install any anti-virus program. I turned off Defender but that did not help system restore. My only solution was to format drive c: again.

    I have been doing exactly this since January. I use Macrium Reflect (free) to make an image, every day in a week's rolling program, of my C drive which is an SSD and contains only my OS and applications - my personal files (docs. etc.) are on the internal spinning HD. I therefore have seven backups to choose from. Making them takes 15 minutes every day (its automatic) and doesn't slow the comp. The images are stored on two external USB hard drives. I also have made a Macrium Rescue Media (a restoration DVD) and had to use it recently when my comp. developed a fault. After booting the comp. on the Rescue Media, I was able to choose any one of the seven backup images which was then copied on to the C drive and I was back to normal in just over an hour.

    I strongly recommend Macrium Reflect.

    Strongly agree with Steve regarding Macrium Reflect. Restore Points are not very reliable or flexible.
