    System Restore missing from advanced startup options


    My advanced startup options used to have a System Restore tile something like this.

    Click image for larger version.

    Hi Kitpzyxmsir

    Is your system restore enabled?

    While you are checking that can you start System Restore from within Windows?

    Windows + R, type sysdm.cpl
    click on System Protection tab. The button "System Restore" should not be grayed out.

    Hi,

    Yes, matter of fact I've been active in the System Restore fails: AppxStaging %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApp 0x80070091 - Windows 10 Forums discussion.

    At this time System Restore is operating normally. I'm looking for a fix, if in fact something is broken and not just the way the current OS build is configured.

    Interesting.

    I recognize that is is outside the bounds of your question but a number of the members rely on Macrium Reflect to Image their OS as either an outright replacement of System Restore or as a backup to it.

    There is a tutorial and for home use it is free.

    I think I would perform the actions in this thread to resolve the situation. Before I did it though I would create an Image with Macrium and its boot disk so I could get back if an issue develops. You may want to search this forum on "Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-Place Upgrade". You will see lots of threads with comments. There is a risk to any solution.

    I might just use Macrium until the Creators release is release in which case you would be going through an In Place Upgrade.

    HI Caledon Ken,

    Im a big proponent of Macrium. Probably my most treasured tool.

    What I primarily need before I proceed any further is someones confirmation that the System Restore tile is or is not supposed to appear in the advanced startup options

    Well on two laptops I just checked it is there, so I will say yes.
