    enhanced attachment uploading turned off
    1. I still only see them in preview. (Also below the Manage Attachments button as usual)
    2. I used to use the Manage Attachments button, drag and drop if necessary from top section to bottom; new uploads would go into the bottom section automatically.

    After you upload the image, are you going back to the paperclip icon to attach them where you want in the post?

    Well, that seems to work; I don't recall ever having to do that in the past.

    I'm not sure why it's not always creating a restore point for you when you manually create one using the shortcut.

    Part of the shortcut script is to set Windows to create one even if one has already been created within 7 days.

    Sometimes it may take a short bit to show up after creating though.

    Re: it may take a short bit to show up
    OK, maybe that's it. I'll give it a while before checking; see if that's all it is.

    Not working for me

    Hi - I downloaded the zip file for option 3, extracted the files and copied the folder to c:/program files. I then copied the shortcut to my desktop. When I click on it it just opens My Documents and does not create any restore point and does not give any message.
    I see some of the other options no longer work. I don't know if this option has stopped working as well .
    tweakradje 's suggestion seems to work when run in an elevated command prompt.

    Microsoft doesn't seem want to make this easy.

    Hello braincramp,

    It sounds like you may have missed doing steps 8 and 9 for the shortcut to work.

    Post #167....

    I have yet to get any script file other than powershell to work with Task Scheduler.

    PowerShell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "& {Start-Process PowerShell -ArgumentList '-NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -NoExit -Command "Checkpoint-Computer -Description "MyRestorePoint" -RestorePointType "MODIFY_SETTINGS"; " ' " -Verb RunAs}"

    This is what I used below in Task Scheduler at step 8. Step 1 is required for it to work though.
