  1. System Protection ON/OFF differences in Feature updates


    Opinions please.
    Sometimes I’d like to be able to explain to people I help as to what’s going on. For those whose computers need System Protection to be turned ON, it’s confusing them as to why.
    Is there rhyme or reason or technicalities as to how it’s determined that some computers react differently.
    I’ve been monitoring them on a few computers I’ve been involved in recently.

    The information I’m including in this thread applies to Feature update 1803, but I’ve seen the same differences before: I do not know if the differences apply only to Feature updates but I don’t recall such differences in Cumulative updates.

    Recently my brother asked me to check out his computer.
    Ran Belarc as I was interest on what his computer consisted of in one easy to read simple report.
    Noticed Version 1803 (build 17134.112) Installed: 5/13/2018
    To me that’s fine but to him he had no idea of what that means.
    Then I checked out the System Restore points.

    He has no idea what that is either but it was interesting to me he did not have to turn on System Protection and he is the only one using his computer.
    But 16 days after Version 1803 (build 17134.112) was installed an Automatic Restore Point was created.
    --- I wish I had another computer to monitor to see if it might be a common occurrence.

    I have monitored whether System Protection needed to be turned ON or was automatically ON on a few computers updated to Feature update 1803.
    OFF 3 (All of these had been upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10)
    Automatically ON 3
    --- One of these had been upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10
    --- One of these had been upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10
    --- One of these is my brother’s new computer that came with Windows 10

    Intel E5200 Gets Updated, R0 Stepping Coming Up

    Intel's Pentium Dual-Core E5200 processor is getting on course for a specifications update. The chip will feature in a new, improved Wolfdale-2M core, spec'd out as the R0 stepping, from its current M0 stepping. The new stepping is intended to add new instructions, power-management features, and bring about changes in the chip-package. A short list of known changes is as follows:
    • CPUID changed from 10677 to 1067A
    • Power State Indicator (PSI) support with Intel 4 series chipsets
    • New instructions - XSAVE and XRSTOR
    • New S-spec and MM numbers
    • New halide-free chip package
    Due to the changed CPUID, users may require BIOS updates to detect the CPU. According to the company, E5200 R0 should be out by April 13.

    System Protection in April update


    I notice in the System Properties/System Protection it lists "System" under available drives and system protection is turned off for this. (It's turned on for my C drive.)

    Should system protection also be turned on for System?

    Cannot Create System Restore Point Because Cannot Turn On System Protection

    In Control Panel/System/System Properties/System Protection, "Available Drives," all that is listed is "Searching..." No drives are located, so no System Restore point can be established.

    How to fix?

    I have an extensive active thread in another area of the community dealing with the failure of this PC to install the latest Windows 10 update. Prior to executing the next suggested step to fix that problem I need to create a System Restore point, so a
    solution to this issue must be found before I can move forward on the major problem.

    YES, I have ALREADY run the SFC Command as Administrator and the report was that everything was A-OK.
