Windows 10: System Restore Windows 10
Any objection uninstalling Avast entirely ?
I am not saying my way is good for you.
Just to tell you what I do. For over 2 years I have been using just the built-in Windows Defender as my Real-time Protection and Malwarebytes free edition as my On-demand Protection.
I run Malwarebytes once a week to make sure the computer is clean, and for over 2 years, I have not had any security issues.
Thanks... maybe that's what happened here.
I really do like this guide, very comprehensive and great pictures!!
My issue is with System Restore. Especially in later versions it seems to fail with growing frequency. I've always had hopes for MS products because hey, I pay for the OS, I should expect to get a functional product in return. Of course, the reality is that it isn't.
I've gone on to disk imaging (Macrium Reflect) and using snapshot programs (Rollback rx) but I always say when the day comes that I don't need those and can trust MS to work say...95% of the time. Then I'll check it out again!
Same Problem here_since last Tues_06_21_16_gave_up&reinstalled_Win8.1, thought it was my softwareor PC, after reading this post, from F-14tomcat, appears might be more common.
Hi, my system restore has no restore point. How can i create one?
You would need to turn on system protection for your Windows C: drive first, then you will be able to create a restore point for Windows. Of course, when you do a system restore, it'll only take you back to how things were when the restore point was created.
it feels and looks just like windows 7 It was stable and helpful back then I hope that it is still as good
my only problem with restore points is it only keeps very few of them I would like to have like 10 or even 20 so whenever I discover a problem I can go back as far as I want before i Consider a total Partition Image restore
i checked "show more points" and still they are very few also the disk usage is only 1.5 gigabytes while the dedicated space is more than 15 Giga bytes why system protection doesnt store enough points ? I wish to know
thanks for the tutorial and help
Hello Darkane, and welcome to Ten Forums.
Are you a Windows Insider? If so, upgrading to a new build will usually wipe out your current restore points.
If you have any disk cleaning program installed, they can wipe your restore points.
Keeping an updated system image backup in addition to restore points would be recommended since restore points will not always help.
thanks for taking the effort
unfortunately all of the above is negative
I'm very committed to keep full images every week but sometimes you know bringing back a week old image will save my a** but lose many things that are very dynamic like program settings that I've changed or files in user folders.
I always prefer to keep my files in other partitions than "C:" but not everything can be easily moved there
some people recommend "Rollback" but it is said that it doesn't play well with disk imaging which is a bummer since both are needed not one or the other
I hear you. Restore points can be handy, but they are not always reliable.
