    Restore Point Question ?


    Hi,

    I looked at all my "Restore Point" screens, but just cannot find the place where you can set it for
    creating a Restore Point periodically, and automatically.

    Where do i find it, please ?

    And, what interval for creating one would you recommend ?

    When it is actually creating one, can the PC still be used for other tasks ?

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Restore point creation is controlled by the Task Scheduler.

    The task scheduler will cause an automatic restore point to be created if no other restore points have been created within 7 days.

    See this tutorial, Method 2.

    System Restore Point : Create at System Startup

    I personally create a manual restore point before I make a change, such as update a driver, otherwise I let the system create them using the default criteria.
