The System Restore Point is one of the most useful backup features on the Windows operating system. When our computer experiences an error and cannot find a solution, then by using this feature we can return the system to a state where the error has not occurred.
For example, let’s say we install a new program, then because for some reasons the computer crashes frequently or other applications cannot be opened, then we just need to restore the system using this feature and the error will disappear.
For Windows 10 users, System Restore Points can also be useful for overcoming a Microsoft Store that cannot be opened or errors.
The point is that activating this feature is important enough so that you don’t have to panic when your computer suddenly crashes while the work to be done is piling up. If it has been activated, we can solve any errors by using this feature. On this occasion, istalkingtech.com will show you how.
How to create a System Restore Point on Windows 10
1. Make sure the computer is healthy
Before activating and creating a System Restore Point, the first thing we have to do is make sure there are no errors on Windows 10. This feature works by restoring the system to its previous state when the System Restore Point was created, therefore we have to create it during our Windows system. is healthy, that means there are no errors or other problems before and during the process.
2. Enter System Protection
Then open Control Panel> System> System Protection , then pay attention to the Protection Settings section, there will be a description of whether the System Restore Point is active or not. If it is active, the statement is on, if not, the statement is off.
In the example image above, the System Restore Point is still not activated, both for drive C (system) and on drive D (data). If the case is the same on your computer then the first step we have to do is activate it first.
The trick is to click on the C drive> click Configure.
After the new window opens, check Turn On System Protection then determine how much disk space we will use for backups, for example 10%.
How much disk space is free, there is no standard, the bigger it is, the more restore points that can be created. If the space we create is small, Windows will delete the old restore point when the space is full while we want to create a new restore point.
When finished, click the OK button.
If you feel that the C drive on your computer is too small, then you can increase the capacity first. See how here:
When we return to the initial window, we will see that the description on drive C has changed to On. This means that we can create a System Restore Point in Windows.
If you have enabled the System Restore Point correctly it will look like the image above.
3. Create a Restore Point
Still on the System Protection window, click the Create button to create a new restore point. After that, name the restore point that will be created then click the Create button.
Wait for the process to complete.
4. Check the restore points that have been created
After the process is successful, we can check the restore point that has been created by clicking on the System Restore button> click Next .
You will see a list of restore points on the system, for example as shown below:
If in the future there is an error in Windows or an application in it, then we can use this restore point that has been created to solve it.
5. Schedule periodic restore point creation
Make sure you create restore points regularly, especially after installing important applications because using restore points will remove applications that were installed after the restore point was created.
That’s the way to activate and create a System Restore Point in Windows 10. It’s very easy, isn’t it, good luck and hopefully it’s useful.
