    So far the only thing I've noticed is that on my computer I can not turn on System Restore. I have a image made with Macrium Reflect so it it's not going to be a problem.

    It might be because System Protection is turned off .
    If so, you will find that all previous restore points are also deleted, in which case, you can't do system restore until you have new restore points.

    I feel much safer with Macrium Reflect than with System Restore anyway, so never even bother to turn on the latter. That saves some system partition space.

    Doesn't seem to be 'dotted' activity wheels on the "Restarting" and Signing Out" screens.

    I just use Aomei Backupper to make an image of the OS after major changes to an external drive. This has saved me many times from Insider Preview problmes.

    When Microsoft announced that new Windows 10 builds will be releasing on a faster pace, the company was serious. On February 24th, only a week after releasing build 14267, the software giant began to push Windows 10 build 14271 to the Fast ring of updates.

    The new build of Windows 10 is not a significant update, but the company is including some fixes to improve the functionality of the operating system. In addition to the official changes, digging a little deeper, we also see that the software giant continues to introduce small fixes that eventually will be part of the next major update, which we currently know as Redstone.

    Microsoft don't want you to take a step back
    Step back would be using windows.old, System restore wouldn't do that anyway. It would be enough to to delete old restore points, no need to turn it off. Something else is afoot there.

    I really don't think so.

    In my experience if you have enough disk space (based on what limits I'm not sure exactly but I think ~30GB free) then restore points are defaulted to be on. If you have a small disk (or partition) then they are defaulted off.

    In any case, as you say, restore points don't work after upgrade so it is only the defaulting on the on/off that is interesting.

    I'm running W10 from 240 GB SSD with a lot of free space and restore point space is limited to 2 - 3 restore points. I wouldn't even turn it on if I was not experimenting with a lot of SW and drivers and chances of something going wrong are elevated. Restore point works 99% of the time ind such cases and is much faster than full system backup/restore.
    Besides, how to explain that in some cases it doesn't get turned off ?
