    How Long to do System Restore


    Win 10 Pro v1803 My system currently has 4 restore points totaling about 23GB. I recently successfully did a system restore. At first I didn't think it was going to work because it sat there in the "Initializing..." condition for 45 minutes before I gave up watching and went to bed. The next morning my system, amazingly enough, was sitting there being happy. The system restore had worked!

    Over many years, going back to at least Windows Me, I have done many system restores, most of which have succeeded, and none of which took such a long time to get going.

    I'm wondering how long a system restore should take?

    Hi Terrie,

    To address your concern, we suggest that you try to undo the restore or pick another restore point.

    • Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select Control Panel.
    • Search Control Panel for Recovery.
    • Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.

    Let us know how it goes.

    SYSTEM RESTORE

    Hello Angel,

    Windows 10 may have encountered a system conflict when it tried to perform a system restore. For us to better assist you on performing a system restore, kindly answer the following questions:

    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    • What is the exact error message are you getting? If possible can you send us a screenshot using the attach photo feature on your reply.
    • What is the current build and version of your Windows 10? To check type in
      winver on the search bar and press Enter.

    Meanwhile, for a walkthrough on how to perform a system restore, kindly follow the steps on this

    article
    and see the section that says Restore from a system restore point.
    On another note, we also suggest that you check the Windows Defender settings and lower down the security if it is on high security. This can also be another issue why it is preventing an update to be installed.

    We'll be waiting for your reply.
