Windows 7: System Restore Point - Create

Windows 7 Professional x64
 
 

What I plan to do is this. I want to clone my Win7 HD with a bigger HD and I want to install Acronis on it in order to facilitate the transfer.

And the end of the cloning process and after I physically install the new HD, I want to revert to that cloned restore point to back before I installed Acronis so it won't be on my new machine. That way I don't have to do an un-install of it and a registry clean up.

Does that make sense?

GWT,

As long as the clone backup includes the restore point, you should still be able to do a system restore using that restore point in that manner.

Shawn you might want to update the bit at the beginning about how often a restore pint is created. It is once every 7 days if one hasn't been created by another means,

Restore Points (Windows)

Quote:
Scheduled restore points

System Restore can be configured to create restore points at regular intervals. Users can also manually create and name a restore point at any time from within the System Restore user interface. These restore points are saved and compressed, and these choices are available to the user through the System Restore user interface. System Restore in Windows 7 creates a scheduled restore point only if no other restore points have been created in the last 7 days. System Restore in Windows Vista creates a checkpoint every 24 hours if no other restore points were created that day. System Restore in Windows XP creates a checkpoint every 24 hours of absolute time.

You're welcome. Only posted it due to a thread about SR and remembered seeing that it was 7 days, so went looking and one of the things found in addition to the above Technet link was this tutorial.

Nice to know since I normaly only create one myself before I install new software just in case I don't want to keep it I can remove it and then use my restore point to go back also.Fabe

Hope this helps,

Hi Brink in the link above on the jpeg 6 i don't have the option of 365 days I was wondering if I have done something wrong. I want to do daily restore points on start up. It says 23 hours in mine also in the general tab should I tick run with highest privileges
