Windows 10: Create System Restore Point shortcut in Windows 10
Hey Brink, its andrew. Been awhile. I am having a difficult time here.
I am trying to make a ultimate vbs create restore point script for every windows version, but for some reason it is not working on windows 10. I don't know what I am missing.
If you could help I would appreciate it.
See attached. I feel like it is really simple whatever it is I am missing.
Create restore point.vbs
I'll have a play with it tomorrow, and will post back as soon as possible.
Thank you so much. Take your time.
The script in the .zip download from step 5 has now been updated so the shortcut will work in XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10.
Grrrreat! while the existing script saw no problems on 10 I still have the 7 side to worry about! Ran into this with the Andrew uploaded there.
Next time I am in 7 or when I reboot the remote case I can run the updated version on 7 to double check on your update there. Did you know I hardly ever use them?! I might just happen to need one about once a year after trying something out and that is when the shortcut would be quite handy over the default points
All shortcuts in this tutorial will now work in XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
That will be good! I still have the one from SF if needed but this one offers the confirmation message and will now be a shared file between both 10 and 7. You can't top that any!
Just confirmed the change remotely by the way when also changing the boot order to see 7 made the default which will be changed back later again but to simply confirm that the change you made does work.
The yellow marks point to the folder used for storing anything system related as well as the download itself with the message right there when tried.
Brink, I cannot thank you enough. I will compare the script to my own to see what was wrong.
Thank you so very much.
You're most welcome Andrew.
Well at least you have one confirmation it works on 7 as well as on 10! With the dual boots going between Insider builds and 7 Pro on one machine and the TH2 and 7 Ultimate on the main I think those extra points will still be needed!
