I used to enjoy the "Windows System Restore" functionality as it was a quick way to go back to a stable system if something went awry (software install, update, etc.). Recently I have had issues with it working correctly ("An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070091)"). I have used the work around that has been mentioned in many forums ("Renaming folder WindowsApps"). But it's a hassle to do this each and every time (although supposedly it is being fixed in a future release, but have also read that windows version of "System Restore" is fraught with difficulties in general anyways).
So, here is my question for the group. What is a good alternative to "Windows System Restore" that is reliable and fairly straightforward that achieves similar results? Is it better to go to more of a straightforward backup tool? I have recently been trying out "Acronis True Image 2016" (Basically received it free from a NewEgg promotion). Is it better to do say a weekly backup and do a disk/partition recovery with this tool to mimic "system restore" (knowing it will take longer but probably be more thorough and stable) as needed?
Anxious for thoughts. Thanks in advance. My system specs are listed in the link below if needed.

Question is not really Windows 10 limited. Moved to Backup forum as this is a backup/restore question
