    Why not Restore Points?


    I've seen many web pages describing how to turn on Win10 support of Restore Points, but I cannot find anything describing why MS has the support turned off by default. I know some people have had problems with Restore Points in the past (including me) but I also know that they've saved my cookies a few times. Does MS feel they are unneeded? Dangerous? Unreliable? When the alternative option is a full system recovery it seems that going back to an earlier Restore Point is a reasonable first attempt at recovery.

    :)

    the restore point

    Hi Alvaro,

    You can save the state of the operating system and your own files by
    creating a restore point, so that if future changes cause a problem, you can
    return them
    to previous versions and settings.

    We suggest that you check the article below and follow the
    guidelines and steps under Restore from a system restore point.
