Windows Ultimate x64
can't enable "Restore system settings..." button in dialog box

Hello All:

I would like to set up a restore point in my computer, feature currently not enabled.

When I go to System Security / System Properties / System Protection for System, I can't click on the "Restore system settings and previous versions of files" button (see attached file).

How can I overcome this matter?

Thank you!

Hello madasco

Firstly you need to turn on system restore and allocate some space for it to use. Have a look here see if it helps you to get it enabled - System Restore - Enable or Disable
