System restore feature on Windows 10 has been particularly created to take a snapshot of your device and save it as a restore point whenever you detect any change. Whenever you come across a major issue
after installing an app, driver or update or after making wrong changes in the system settings using the Registry or some other tool, you can use a restore point to help a device go back to the earlier position and fix the issue without any data loss.
This tool of troubleshooting is quite useful. However, this option of system restore is disabled by default that means you are required to enable it before you form up any restore points. Mentioned below are some steps that you need to carry out to set up System Restore. Also, here you are going to learn the steps that you need to perform to stop your device from functioning abnormally.
As we read earlier, System Restore is disabled by default but to enable it, these are the steps that you need to follow.
When you are done with performing the steps mentioned above, a restore point will be created automatically on Wiindows 10 while making certain changes in the system or at the time of applying a
new update. The feature of System Restore is not something that can be enabled internationally. This option is particularly avalable for system drives.
Whenever the changes in the system are detacted, System Restore checkpoints get created automatically.In case, you are about to make important alterations to your system, then it is advisable to manually create restore points. Mentioned below are the steps that you need to carry out in order to create System Restore points.
Once you are done with performing the steps above, you can undo the changes if you think that you have done something wrong at the time of installing a new app or driver or while editing the Registry.
Mentioned below are the steps that you need to carry out to access System Restore when your computer does not start.
Step 1: Go to the button of Advanced options.
Step 2: Select Troubleshoot.
Step 3: After that, click on Advanced options.
Step 4: Select the option of System Restore.
Step 5: Select the button of Next.
Step 6: Choose the restore point that you wish to use on your computer.
Step 7: Select the button of Scan for affected programs to know the apps that were added after creating a restore point.
Step 8: Select Close and then select Next and then click on the button of Finish.
After the completion of all the steps, the changes that are leading to the occurence of issue will get removed and your system will be back to normal. This guide is for Windows 10 but these instructions are not specifically for Windows 10 and can be applied to older versions as well.
Just keep one thing in mind that System Restore is not backup replacement nor is it an option to reset your system. If there are some physical issues with your hard drive or some file corruption that cannot be repaired, then you may permanently loose your data.
