    Scheduling System Restore Point Creation


    Hi Forum,
    I see that Win10 has deleted the function to schedule the creation of restore points!
    Supposedly it creates a new restore point before downloading updates (if the function is turned on; by default it is off!).
    I like to schedule the creation of points every few days or each week to prevent viruses from corrupting things.
    This feature is so important; I can't believe they have hidden it, made it less functional, and turned it off by default!
    Is there any way to run the creation button from the task scheduler or something to automatically schedule restore point creation?
    Thanks!
    Mike

    I'm not sure it has changed (except for the default).

    You can schedule them through task scheduler as described in method 2 here System Restore Point : Create at System Startup - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Hi Tairiku,
    Thank you!
    I can discern that this would possibly enable restore, and set the file size to 25GB. Would it also schedule a restore point for each week?
    Thanks!

    halasz,
    Thank you!
    The file seems to work, and I was able to set a schedule for it.
    Blessings to you!

    Hi, noted in task scheduler I have a task set to (supposedly) create a restore point at 15:00 each day. It doesn't..
    Action = %windir%\system32\srtasks.exe ExecuteScheduledSPPCreation
    In Task Scheduler Library/Microsoft/Windows/SystemRestore in task manager.

    I use the method above as per halasz.

    Does anyone know anything about that entry in my task schedule? Historic leftover?

    That task is always there but doesn't have a scheduled frequency. It is used by Windows to make its restore points before you install software etc.

    To make them on schedule you need to you the vbs from the Windows 7 tutorial or (if you want to do it less often than once a day) you could schedule powershell CheckPoint-Computer

    Thanks, the thing that puzzled me was that task is set to run at 15:00 every day..

    (Yes, I've scheduled daily restore points thru Win 7, 8 before 10 like that or similar.. and used to do the same with registry backups)

    That 15:00 isn't right - must be some leftover as you say. All my systems it exits but has no schedule (including clean install of 10565 from yesterday).

    If you run it manually it completes successfully but doesn't do anything (well doesn't make a restore point anyway).
