I enabled system restore but i have noticed that when windows 10 updates occur a restore is not being created. On previous vesions it occured is there some setting i cannot find or does it no longer exist?

Are you using Windows backup? Can you create a system restore point by hand? We actually don't use windows backup now. Some freeware are quite popular, like Macrium reflect, Easeus todo backup free, or paragon backup&recovery. I'm now using Easeus todo backup.

According to this article:  https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa378910%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Autoupates are supposed to generate SystemRestore points - I don't know if manually updating will do the same thing.

I have system restore disabled because I use SSD so I don't know if it will create a restore point before updates. But you can always create a restore point manually.

Also, not every Windows Update ever created a restore point.   There are lots of "trivial" (in terms of changes) updates such as updates to virus definitions for Windows Defender or malware signatures for the Malware Removal Tool (and there are others) that don't set a restore point because they don't tweak any Windows internals.

 

Most of the "tiny" Windows Updates don't create restore points.  MS decides whether a given update warrants the setting of a restore point prior to installation or not.
