    Default Fall update disables system restore

    Just checked 4 Windows 10 systems here that have the recent Fall update.
    System restore had been disabled on all of them.

    Its not the Fall update .
    This has been a Win10 "issue" for some time .

    MS : lets fiddle around the edges & not fix the basics .

    Looks like the Anniversary update, did the same thing

    It probably applies to the Fall update as well. Since it adds new features. So, it disables system restore

    that makes sense, dont want to restore system files from an older build of 10

    What MS should do then , is clear out the system restore & then re-enable it .
    MS update leaving system restore disabled is nuts .

    Yep that's the one...

    System restore is disabled because you can't do a system restore between different Windows build versions. If you need to rollback to the previous Windows build you can use the Recovery option under "Settings--->Update & Security--->Recovery". This will allow you to go back to the previous Windows build.

    Windows holds the required files for the recovery process for a month at which point it automatically deletes the files and also re-enables system restore.

    It's also worth noting that with every update that damn Xbox DVR thing gets turned back on again. I hate it!

    Got woken up by a banging noise about 3am.
    Gaming system had woken up & the Logitech G27 was calibrating.
