Windows 7: How Do I Force Creating "Restore Previous Session" Points forIE Folder

How Do I Force Creating "Restore Previous Session" Points forIE Folder

I close all tabs of IE9 daily and restore them the next day from a blank tab. However, often IE stops working and restarts certain tabs, and when this happens it acts as if no tabs were stored from last session, (the link is dimmed). I found that I can open the Properties of IE folder (AppData\Local\Microsoft) and use Restore Previous Session to restore previous file versions I can possibly recover my last used tabs, depending on the last restore point available there. Apparently, these restore points are not generated daily or controlled by IE. They are generated by Windows Backup and Windows Restore function. Can you suggest an efficient way to creating daily Restore Previous Session points with current version of IE folder?

Hi aashomlo, welcome to 7F!

Its been awhile since I used IE9, but check in Internet Options on the General tab, do you see a setting under Startup like this one by the red arrow?
