Windows – System Restore is not creating restore points

system-restorewindows 8.1

On my Windows 8.1 system, System Restore is not automatically creating restore points when programs are installed or uninstalled or at specified intervals. I have enough free space on the disk. What can be the cause of this?

First thing to check is that it is switched on correctly:

  1. Windows key + X to get menu - choose System.
  2. Choose Advanced system settings from left menu.
  3. Pick System Protection tab. (It will tell you here if its on or not)
  4. Choose Configure and check settings.
