You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to perform a System Restore. When you do a System Restore, system protection will automatically create a restore point before proceeding, so you can undo the changes made by the System Restore if needed. If you do a system restore while in, it cannot be. If you do a system restore from the menu, it cannot be. Brink, If this is not the right place to post, please move.
I have had consistent problems with doing a restore from a restore point, starting back with 1st build 9841. No problem creating one. I've tried both from boot and inline. I've probably done 100's of these on Win 7 and a few on Win 8.1, but 10tp causes issues. I think I may have had 1 go right since TP started. Scenario is usually about 2 mins into restore, I get an error that the restore point is damaged or otherwise unusable. Sometimes it will complete successfully, but weird issues after restart.
Just this morning, to test, I created one, made a few changes to system settings (put cortana back on taskbar), installed some innocuous program, changed by wallpaper. Ran for a while, about 30 mins. Then, thru the system protection UI, same place I created it, I fired up restore and let it go to completion and restart. Thought all looked ok. My changes were restored back, the app I installed was gone, BUT.
So was the START MENU! No click on start button, no win key, nothing! I had to re-image from backup.
I have no problems doing a re-imaging from backup VHDs. Just these restore points 99.9% of the time fail or restore strangely. I get no errors when I create them.
