Why Does System Restore Never Work in Windows 10?

Occasional Contributor

I have tried System Restore on multiple Windows 10 Pro machines over the past few months, and it has never, ever worked. Usually, it takes an hour or two before it gets the whole way through, and then it inevitably fails. System Restore is turned on and has multiple restore points. Even if I try a different restore point, I get the same result. Is there some way of making System Restore work? All of these different machines can't possibly have corrupted hard drives or malware or some other problem. Thanks in advance.
