Which System Restore, you're talking about? Normally Windows 10 Recovery and Advanced startup working great.

I always recommend that everyone should use disc imaging software on a regular basis. It is the best backup and recovery method available. The best imaging software is Acronis True Image, but it is not free. The top free alternative is Macrium Reflect.

When you restore your PC to a prior restore point, any applications you introduced after that point will get uninstalled. Applications that were introduced when that restore point was made will in any case be set up. Applications that you uninstalled subsequent to making that restore point will get restored, yet with a major proviso. Since System Restore just restores certain sorts of files, projects that get restored regularly won't work or at any least, work legitimately until you re-run their installers.

A rescue disk is good.

Adding the boot time recovery environment helps ---

If the USB device is formatted as NTFS you will end up with 1 big image file ---

This issue has been resolved according to the OP. Since the OP originally posted...

 

Can someone tell me a way to get system restore to work on my windows10?

I  am offering details on using the built in Windows System Restore feature.

.
As a Windows Insider In most cases new builds and sometimes Cumulative Updates for that particular build, System Restore is turned off by default, even though you had System Restore Turned On in the previous build. (Active Windows Insiders can vouch for this annoyance,) Your settings for the amount of disk space to allocate for System Restore Points usually remains unchanged.

 

The following is a simple How To for checking or enabling System Restore in Windows 10.

In the taskbar search window, enter System Restore and choose Create a restore point.

If system restore is Turned Off, simply highlight the drive and click the configure button.

On the next window place the bullet in Turn on system protection. Next set the Maximum Usage by moving the slider. Click Apply and Ok.

Should you wish to immediately create a restore point click the Create button. A new window opens allowing you to enter a description of the restore point and once again click the Create button. This process may take a few minutes to complete, be patient.

When the Restore Point Creation is finished you will be notified. Click the Close button and click Ok. You have completed setting up your device to create System Restore Points.

 

Hope this helps future inquires using system restore.

It looks like you have made the good choice to use Macrium Reflect.  If you keep this image on removable media (such as an external ssd/hdd, flash drive, etc.) you will have it available even if the ssd/hdd fail and you need to do a fresh installation on a new drive.

 

I would like to address your question in your first post regarding System Restore.

 

Windiows 10 System Restore

With some of the updates that are being installed System Restore can be disabled.  For this reason it is worth while to see if it is configured.  Follow the instructions below to see if System Restore is configured and how to configure it if it is not.

Press the windows keywindowskey_zps092d5c75.png  and the X key to open the Windows Mobility Center menu.

When the menu opens select Control Panel, then click/tap on Recovery.

When Recovery opens click/tap on Configure System Restore.  Click/tap on the Systen Protection tab.  You will see a image like the one below.  

system%20restore%20config_zpsov2nz9i4.pn

Under Protection Settings the Local disk (C:) (System) should be On if System Restore is configured.  If it is not click/tap on Configure and click/tap on the radio button for Turn on system protection.  Click/tap on Apply, the OK.



How to use System Restore in Windows 10

Press the windows keywindowskey_zps092d5c75.png  and the X key to open the Windows Mobility Center menu.

When the menu opens select Control Panel, then click/tap on Recovery, click/tap on Open System Restore.

When System Restore opens you will see the image below, click/tap on Next.

sys%20restore1_zpsybgszxv8.png

You will see the image below.  Select a restore point prior to your problem.  Please notice that in the lower left portion of there image the is the option to Show more restore points, use this if there isn't already a restore point above that will work.

sys%20restore2_zpsh2nii6mg.png

Click/tap on Next after selecting your restore point.  Click/tap on finish.

System Restore will run now.
 


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
