    Unable to Create Restore Point on Schedule

    How do I create a "Create Restore Point on Schedule" when I don't have a password? I used to have a schedule that worked until I upgraded to 2004.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi, whilst you may be able to set up a scheduled task to launch one of the scripts you can find on the net to create a restore point - which is what I still have set up on one PC-
    (Example: there are several with and without a prompt to name the restore point:

    and not have to enter a password, the fact your password no longer works may catch you out in other ways. For example, if you wished to boot to a command prompt- if you use a PIN now, you can log in to Safe Mode now with that, but not boot to command prompt without a password.

    Some actions as a local user would also require admin password approval.

    You may be able to use one of these methods to reset your password:

    Make sure you use disk imaging routinely and regularly to give you a means of recovering from many problems. E.g. Macrium Reflect (free).
