System Restore Point all you need to know about operation

A system restore point (System Restore Point) is essentially one backup copy of your system settings. Includes installed applications, the Windows registry, and your system files. It is incredibly useful when something goes wrong with your system, for example, after an update to a new version of Windows 10.

You can use a system restore point to return to a stable system. Below we will see how you can create a system restore point in Windows 10.

To create a system restore point in Windows 10, you must have administrator privileges.

Open File Explorer and in the navigation bar on the left, right-click on “This PC” or This Computer and select Properties. In the Properties window and in the options on the left, click Advanced System Settings.

In the "System Settings" window, change to the "System Protection" tab. The System Protection tab will display all the units configured for System Restore Point on your system.
You can create a system restore point for each drive, but in most cases, it is enough to create a Restore Point on the disk that contains Windows.

Select the Windows disk and click the Configure button.

Select System Activate and activate the space that the restore points will need. Usually, 500 MB is enough, but you can allocate up to 1 GB if you have it. Adjust the space by dragging the slider to Max Usage. Click Apply and close the window.System Restore Point

You can then go back to the System Properties window and click the Create button at the bottom to create a System Restore Point for the disk you selected. Give it a name to identify it and create the restore point. Its creation takes only a few minutes. The date is added automatically so you do not need to include it in the name.

To reset your system now, you need to open the same system settings window. Select the disk you want to restore and click the System Restore button.
A window will open and after clicking Next, you will see a list of restore points that have been created. Each restore point contains a date and all you need to do is choose which one you want to restore. Follow the instructions on your screen.

If you still want to delete all the restore points you have created, click the Setup button in the System Properties window. Then click the Delete button at the bottom to delete all restore points.

To delete individual restore points, open the command prompt with administrator privileges.

Type the following command to display all restore points.

vssadmin list shadows

The restore points will not appear with the name you gave them, but with an ID and the date they were created. Make a note of the restore point ID you want to delete.

Delete the restore point you are interested in with the following command:

vssadmin delete shadows / shadow = {id}

For example:

vssadmin delete shadows /Shadow={12a345kj-rra4-8z94-q7g9-5f4fhhg6534t}
