How to Enable System Protection for Drives on Windows 11

Hello everyone, today in this article we will show you how to enable System Protection for drives in Windows 11. Windows operating system includes a feature called System Protection that creates restore points so that the computer can be returned to previous working states to fix potential problems. When a drive is added to System Protection, Windows creates restore points so that you can undo unnecessary changes and return to a previous state of the drive. So, without further ado, let’s get started.

Enabling system protection for a drive allows System Restore to include the drive when restore points are created, so that unwanted system changes can be undone by reverting to a previous point in time. System Restore monitors system changes and saves the system state as a restore point. If a problem occurs as a result of a system change, the user can restore the system to its previous state using data from a restore point. Restore points are created to allow users to select a previous state of the system. Each restore point contains the information needed to restore the system to the selected state. Restore points are created before fundamental changes are made to the system. Before proceeding, we recommend you to update windows PC.
