Creating a system restore point
In system properties -> system protection, I can't enable protection on any of my drives (C) and (D). And so I can't create system restore points. Can someone tell me why this is? I'm using win 10 ver 1903
I can't figure out an easy way to set up a restore point in Win 10. It seems like all I can do is a backup. I had to reinstall Windows recently because I couldn't find anything about restore points. Did they get rid of this? If not, why isn't it easier to find? If they did get rid of it, bad for you guys. It was really useful.
Backing up and restoring the registry
WARNING: Registry Editor (REGEDIT.EXE) is a very powerful tool that lets you make changes to the registry. However, incorrectly using Registry Editor can cause serious, system-wide problems that include hard disk corruption, general instability, or being unable to use your computer. It may be necessary for you to reinstall your operating system to correct the problems. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Also, Microsoft does not support changes made to the registry. Use this tool at your own risk. Backing up and restoring your registry can be done by: - Exporting to the registry file for backup - Importing to Registry Editor for restoration - Creating a restore point for backup / using System Restore for restoration - Creating a system image for backup / using System Image for restoration To back up / restore your registry: 1. Press WINDOWS LOGO + R, type "regedit" and press ENTER. 2. Do the following: - If you want to back up one of the registry keys, navigate to any, click Export on the File menu, type the name, and then press ENTER. - To restore the registry, click Import on the File menu, find the file that ends with .REG, and then double-click it. PROFESSIONAL TIPS: Instead of importing to or exporting from Registry Editor, it's strongly recommended to either create a restore point or create a system image. That way, you can use System Restore or System Image Recovery in case changes to the registry can cause your computer a problem.
Win. 10, Ver. 20H2 Install Fails, Disk 100%, Restore Fails
I tried to install the October 20, 2020 Windows 10 update, version 20H2. The installation failed. I believe it was due to the HDD being maxed out at 100%. Following the failed installation, the computer continued to run with HDD at 100%. Following virus scans, I attempted System Restore. Only 2 prior System Restore points were available. Multiple System Restore attempts were made. Anti-virus and firewall settings were turned off following failed System Restore attempts. Following the final, failed System Restore attempt using the oldest System Restore date, the HDD problem seems to have been resolved, even though the System Restore failed. Regarding the failed System Restore, I received the following message after each failed attempt: _______________________ "System Restore did not complete successfully. Your Computer's system files were not changed. Details: System Restore could not access a file. This is probably because an anti-virus program is running on the computer. Temporarily disable your antivirus program and retry System Restore An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070005) You can try System Restore again and choose a different restore point. If you continue to see this error, you can try an advanced recovery method." ______________________ HISTORY: This i5, 8GB, HP computer was purchased in 12/2018. It encountered a problem following purchase that required a System Restore. At that time, System Restore crashed the operating system, which became unusable. This required returning the computer to HP for warranty repair. The repaired laptop computer that was returned to me had an updated BIOS and the HDD partition was removed. I am currently running Win-10, Version 1909. The current HDD problem seems to be resolved. However, System Restore is not working properly. 1) Does anyone have any thoughts as to how I can get System Restore to work? 2) HDD at 100% seems to be a problem with Windows 10, Version 20H2. Any thoughts?

Crash with loss of restorepoint
After installing Build 19619.1000 a few weeks ago, I had a crash today. Windows rebooted and everything was brought back to November 2019, so everything between then and now yesterday is gone, also my restore point. Can anyone help me with this please. Thanks in advance
In the search box on the taskbar, type Create a restore point, and select it from the list of results. On the System Protection tab in System Properties, select Create. Type a description for the restore point, and then select Create > OK.
To go back to a restore point: Select the Start button, then type control panel in the search box next to the Start button on the taskbar and select Control Panel (Desktop app) from the results. Search Control Panel for Recovery, and select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.
Restore points are created to let users select a previous system state. Each restore point contains the required information to restore the system to the selected state. Restore points are created before key changes are made to the system. System Restore automatically manages the disk space that is allocated for restore points.
Restore points are automatically created each week by System Restore and when your PC detects change, like when you install an app or driver. Here's how to create a restore point. Right-click the Start button, then select Control Panel > System and Maintenance > System. In the left pane, select System protection.
