Windows 7: System Restore never creates 'am system checkpoint'

I haven't seen any daily restore points made on either the 32bit or 64bit 7000 builds. The problem with the performance and reliability section sounds like you saw a bad burn to disk not seeing everything fully placed there by the burning program you used at the time or something simply didn't go on fully during the install itself.

I presume this is the reason I dont get a daily system restore and maybe why the reliability monitor is not working.

Windows 7 x64

Anybody seen this or have a solution.
these two services are vital to system operation and as such will trigger a shutdown or a BSOD (i remember that happend once) if you close/kill/terminate these two services....
this has been in vista and 7 and XP all the way leading to 2000 (these two services are in xp/2000 but i forget if you can stop them...)

It works. Through my aforementioned manipulation, I now have daily Restore Points being created automatically. But since I have my security settings on normal, I still have to click 'allow' or whatever when the Instant Restore Point runs. Oh well, anything is better than having to remember to create Restore Points on my own.

Now it will just pop up once a day in the morning and I just have to click the sucker. No biggie. It's just like when I get a chat from a friend.

Did you right click on the startup folder and find target to drag the shortcut in there? I was about to give that one a try since I boot into XP every so often and don't want to forget clicking the shortcut on the next boot of 7 or Vista for that matter.

Hi there
probably not the answer you want -- but I'd forget the system Restore point etc.

Use some imaging software like GHOST or Acronis -- my favourite is Acronis (Backup software for data backup and disaster recovery in Windows and Linux - Acronis)

You can backup partitions, data, clone disks etc etc.

what's even nicer is that you can create bootable restore media so you can recover anything even if your hard disks go totally AWOL.

I use this a lot when testing softwrae -- some programs especially Anti-Virus software are a real pig to uninstall and mess up the registry --it's much easier to restore the entire OS again (takes around 15 - 25mins for an average system).

cheers

My understanding is that Windows 7 changed automatic restore points to occur only of a restore point has not been made in 7 days.

You'll note Vista saw 24hrs. unless one had been created and XP automatically saw on regardless. 7 will use less drive space on a smaller hard drive as you will note from that before replacing old for new.

I would have to drag the instant restore point shortcut into the startup folder. Now I have 28 instead of seeing 3 or 4 in just a few days!
