I don't know if getting rid of older restore points is deliberate
or just something that happens when system restore gets messed
up. Either way, I wouldn't count on it to do any more than undo
something you just did. It is good for today's disaster, but I
wouldn't trust it on a disaster that happened a couple of weeks

I don't know if it's different in windows 10, but I've
noticed that in windows 7 that the operating system only keeps a
few of the backup points and it bumps out older backup points.
Someone I know has tried using system restore only to find
that he could not go back as far as he wanted to in restoring

I think I've had one restore in over 30 years not work, so your
assertion about "too much to go wrong" just doesn't hold water in
my professional experience. If these suites were commonly
problematic, they'd have died out long, long ago. They're
generally very slick, easy, and, most importantly, fast at getting
a machine right back on its feet to precisely the state it was in
when the full system image backup was taken.
That being said, you bring up another good point is that in
addition to full system image backups, one should also be taking
separate user data backups. The File History utility in Windows
10 is an excellent tool for this. Most backup & recovery
suites also include a function strictly for user data rather than
full system images as well.
