    what is a reasonable size for system restore?


    This a generic question; so, the only relevant specs are:
    • Windows 10 Pro x64 w/ 128GB SSD
    • Windows Home x64 w/ 256GB SSD

    I am accustomed to much larger C drives where System Restore size is not relevant. If I did my research properly, an individual restore point requires roughly 1GB of disc space. Recommended storage allocation range was listed at 3-10% of total storage space.

    questions:
    • Did I find correct information?
    • What do you recommend (in GB) for each of the computers listed above?

    Thanks for your replies.

    regards,

    :)

    System Restore error

    Hi Alex,

    It is possible that the service of System Restore did not run right away. This can be the reason why you're seeing an error log in the Event Viewer. If you can use your computer smoothly and if you can run System Restore without any issues, it means that
    the error that you saw in the Event Viewer is already resolved.

    If you're having an issue using System Restore, there may be an issue with the hard drive of your computer. This may also be the reason why you're encountering the error code 0x80070057 in Event Viewer. We suggest that you run the "check disk" command to
    check the hard drive of your computer. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Right-click the Windows logo (Start button).
    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin).
    • In the command window, type chkdsk /f, and then press
      Enter
      .
    • Press the letter "Y" on your keyboard, and then press Enter.
    • Restart your computer start the "check disk" process.

    Let us know how it goes.

    System restore

    Hi Thomas,

    Some of the possible reasons why you're having issues performing a system restore is due to corrupted system files on your computer or corrupted user profile. We may need to do further investigation to identify the issue and its cause. Please provide the
    following information:

    • Are you getting any error message/code?
    • What are the changes made on your computer prior to this?
    • Can you tell us what are the troubleshooting steps you've already tried?
