    Have to be careful when turning it on. On my system it defaults to 0% when turned on. Without manually setting to some other percentage, it will not even make any points.
    Yup, that's part of the process that MS wants us to decide how much space we want the System Restore feature to take. Because if MS takes the liberty of deciding how much space to take, I'm sure some of us will complain if it's too much or too little. It's also automatic for me to make adjustments to it when turning it on.

    Yes,, of course. In order to remove the shadow copies belonging to the previous OS the feature needs to be turned off. After the upgrade it can then be turned on again.

    Exactly. So even if it was turned back on automatically it would still not work for you need to decide yourself what amount of space you want to give it.

    I guess a lot of users will learn the hard way ?

    And MS should be turning it on again as part of the install completion!

    No. By default and design in new installs System Restore is turned off to not use unnecessary storage space for shadow copies in case user does not want it for instance due small HDD / SSD. This naturally applies both clean installs and OS change (upgrade install).

    It's then up to user to enable this optional feature. Or do you mean all Windows optional features should be on and enabled by default? If not, who should be the one to decide which optional features are on and enabled in a new freshly installed or upgraded Windows?

    Hahaha.. don't tell me you are also affected with this. :)
    Problem is, you have to manually set the space allocation for System Restore. I don't think MS will remember how much you set it previously. It's based on individual preference. Even if it's turned back on automatically after the update, you still have to go in and adjust the storage allocation.

    But, MS did turn on this option at least since Windows 7. They assign some reasonable amount of disk space (between 5 an 10%) to System restore, and it works well for most of users. At least I don't recall some massive protest against it.

    MS have always had it turned on by default for all other OSs. The average user expects to be able to fall back to system restore when they mess up their system, just like they always have in the past. Changing the rules, and not telling anyone is just plain stupid. MS have enough damage control to do with all their other issues.
