    how to block or save a restore point


    The restore point has saved my time sometime specially when the machine becomes unmanageable. Unfortunately often I found the last restore point available corrupted (the first working one has been overwritten - not present in the list - ). I know in this way I loose updates and downloads in between but at the end it saves me time anyway .....I have tried different options but did not find a way to block or save the creation of new points >> for example I tried turning on the restore setting > create a new point > then if i disable the system restore (setting it off) i loose the one previously created ( it is deleted / lost) in fact when I turn the system protection on again and I try to recover looking the last point created in the system restore I do not find any saved point (it is empty).

    Is there a solution?

    Thanks

    Even if you could save a restore point, and then make use of it, there are times when it becomes totally irrelevant. For example, after any sort of upgrade- a build upgrade, an in-place upgrade repair install.

    When those occur, all restore points are (quite rightly) deleted.

    Thank you very much for your advice and suggestion, helpful indeed

    Very interesting the software: RollBack Rx Home

    Check how RollBack Rx is affected by a Win 10 upgrade (not update). I've not looked but I think it used to be the case such software had to be uninstalled first. Hopefully things have moved on.
