before...The reason for that may be anything depending upon your work like for example 

if your PC went into trouble after installing some kind of Apps or after downloading Some 

stuffs like Music and video's,then you can get back your System to 

normal using this System Restore option. 

Though earlier Windows editions have System Restore Option enabled by 

default, in some editions of Windows 10 system Restore is disabled,we don't why system 

restore was turned off by default..we guess Microsoft simply leaved this thing to 

users if they wish they can turn it on or something like that..Whatever it may its you going to 

suffer if you hadn't turned on System restore as leaving it off will Result in a 

Situation where you can't recover your PC Without proper Recovery Disk(installation media)..
