System Restore / Protection Windows 10 disabled

    General discussion

  • Can some explain why system restore /protection is disabled by default in Windows 10? This has saved a lot of work in the past. 

    Also, I can find no easy (gpo) way to turn it on and configure it. I have Windows 10 GPO templates in central policy.

    Thank you

  • Is it turned off in group policy? Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> System Restore Turn off system restore set to enabled? If so set to disabled or not configured which I'm guessing toggles it back on as I can't find an explicit policy to turn on
