Windows 7: Setting restore points in Win7

Setting restore points in Win7

At wit’s end here for System Restore in Win7.

WhenI had XP Pro, I could set ‘restore points’ [ie, every 20hrs, daily, etc.] butnow that I had to change to Win7 [Thanks, Microsoft] I can never find a currentdate; other than ‘today’s date’. The only other set points are months inarrears… Is this because Seagate is backing up files ?

I did purchase a Seagate back up, but I believe it only backs up files, etc. [not really sure, but I know it’s always up to date]

WhenI check System Properties, the indicated settings are:

1. Local Disk [C][System] ON

2. Seagate BackupPlus Drive [K] OFF


Is there a way that I can set a Restore Point on the C-drive that will allow me to have a somewhat current restore point; of 20 hours, or whatever??
