    There is in YAST / System /System Restoration.

    However, you have to manually make a backup of your system before running into a problem. It does not do automatic backups for you.

    As you without any doubt went to YAST / System /System Restoration as foresthill suggested, you may have seen YAST /System /System Backup.

    I may be stupid, but that looks to me as the other one of the twins.

    Not at this point. Unless you do a backup now and wait 5 days. Then you can go 5 days back in time, but not at present.

    That's a bit confusing

    How does deleting your user and recreating it equate to rolling your system back 5 days similar to how winows restore would?

    It would be completely starting afresh with your user account rather than 'rolling back'

    If it's your own user account you like to refresh why not just use Yast's System Backup tool to create a backup of your /home/username directory then use Yast's System Restore to go back to that point five days later

    Although why anyone would want to keep going back five days I don't know, you could keep losing things you'd spent time setting up as well as personal files

    It may be better to tell us what your problem is instead of asking for a solution 'like windows'. I for myself do not even know what works 'like windows' and I am not willing to by any windows software to find out what solution it has, to find out what problem you have. Are you still with me?

    hcw

    Windows restore is a utility that lets you 'roll back' windows to a previously created 'restore point'

    It's great, I especially like the way there are many viruses it automatically restores after antivirus software has tried removing them
