    Task Scheduler fails to schedule Restore Point Creation


    I have set up the following in Task Scheduler:-

    However it does not work!

    Any ideas anyone?

    PS: How can I enable history?

    Hi, presumably you have ensured that system restore is enabled (it's disabled by default in Win 10). Forgive the obvious question..

    From Shawn's tutorial on this in eightforums I noted:


    • System Restore in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 creates a scheduled restore point only if no other restore points have been created in the last 7 days.



    Maybe that applies in '10.

    I remember there's a task that looks as if it should do this, and I went through exactly what you've done, then found it doesn't. whether this is it, I can't recall.

    The definitive solution which I've used for a long time is to install a small utility by Shawn and set up my own task.

    I've noted that MS seems to now not create restore points before updates.. and seen that comment elsewhere..

    Thanks Dalchina.

    I've tried Shawn's utility. It doesn't seem to work on Windows 10.

    Strange- it works for me.. can you confirm you have system restore enabled?

    Yes it is enabled.
    I have just checked the content of one of the script files and it looks like it does not contain support for Windows 10:-
    If instr(objOS.Caption, "Windows 8") Then
    GetOS = "Windows 8"
    elseIf instr(objOS.Caption, "Windows 7") Then
    GetOS = "Windows 7"
    elseIf instr(objOS.Caption, "Vista") Then
    GetOS = "Windows Vista"
    elseIf instr(objOS.Caption, "Windows XP") Then
    GetOS = "Windows XP"
    End If

    Did you modify the files from the Windows 7 forum, or is there a newer version?
