Two System Restore Questions

Hello, i have couple of questions if you don't mind:-

1. How to set the system restore to make one automatically
at let's say 10 am everyddy? Is that possible!

2. I used system restore many times before & it worked perfect,
but when i looked to the settings i have found this:

Which it's set to restore NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!
Would mind explain the other two options?

1 - yes you can create a task to create a restore point at a specific time of day. I would suggest familiarizing yourself with the task scheduler. Here's something to get you started on that - Task Scheduler - Create New Task

2 - is drive G: your operating system drive? sometimes windows will not activate system restore on secondary or tertiary drives automatically, you have to set it yourself. System restore can be set on a drive by drive basis, it has always been set up this way to my knowledge. Personally I have 5 drives but only have restore enabled on the drive windows is located on. Any problem you encounter in windows is going to generally be a result of corrupted files or settings in windows itself.

Hello DaYiM,

You could use the "Instant Restore Point" shortcut in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below and save it somewhere on your computer. Next, create a new task in Task Scheduler to run this shortcut at 10AM everyday.

System Restore Point Shortcut

By default, only the C: drive has system protection turned on for it. Any other drive will have to be manually turned on. The notes under the steps in the tutorial below can help explain what each of those options are for.

System Protection - Turn On or Off

Hope this helps,
Shawn

EDIT:
Oops, David beat me by a bit.

It's all good I didn't think to link the restore shortcut link so you added something needed anyhow.
