Windows 10: Scheduled Instant Restore Point - No Restore Point Created
Scheduled Instant Restore Point - No Restore Point Created
I followed the instruction to manually create a Manual Restore Point and that works fine. Then I decided to set up the task in the Task Scheduler to automatically create a restore point once daily. For some reason the task is started as it should but it never completes and I have to manually terminate it. I have included in the attached ZIP file, 5 screen shots of the tabs of the task, 4 screen shots of the history tab starting and running and then 4 screen shots of the history tab when I terminated it an hour and 25 minutes later. I don't think a restore point takes over 85 minutes to complete so I wonder what I have set incorrectly??? The VBS file is C:\Program Files\Scheduled_Instant_Restore_Point.vbs and was downloaded from the W7 forum.
Let me know if you need any additional information. If this has been answered, I couldn't find the thread. Please point me to it.

Concerning Restore Points on W10.
My understanding is that these are created "automatically".
Or, you can do it "Manually".
I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 this past week. All is well except for one thing. I received an update from Microsoft yesterday (Cumulative Update for Win 10 - KB3081424) and noted during the installation that no restore point was created. System...
So why did Microsoft change this? If I remember correctly all previous versions would create a system restore point before doing Microsoft updates. Since 10 installed all updates that come in for me are downloaded and installed without a restore...
