Installation :: Create System Restore Point?

Dec 30, 2015

After the recent (automatic) upgrade to windows 10 ( I have been running windows 10 for months), I can sign in to windows 10 but the desktop that appears with my sign in is something foreign and all my files, pictures and videos are NOT in any folders under Documents. So I thought I would go back to a restore point but am a bit afraid to since I cannot find a Restore file and I don't know how Microsoft and windows 10 works in this are or if my files are included in the automatic backup by the "system restore point" process. Then I thought I should, on my other windows 10 laptops, "create" a restore point from time to time as I feel is needed.

Performance :: System Restore Point Configure

Dec 9, 2015

New desktop computer - Windows 10 Home. In System Restore, Configure, the Max Usage slider is all the way to the left.What does that mean?The hard drive is 1 TB, so I'm not concerned about how much it uses.(On my old Windows 7 desktop, I moved the slider to the right and it now saves fewer restore points.)

Settings Grayed Out After Using System Restore Point

Aug 31, 2015

After restoring my computer back two days using System Restore, I noticed in PC Settings>Personalization>Start>Choose which folders appear on Start, that all the options are greyed out except "Settings". I was wondering if there was a way to fix this? I already tried SFC /Scannow and DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, but neither fixed the problem.

No System Restore Point Created During Microsoft Update

Aug 6, 2015

I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 this past week. All is well except for one thing. I received an update from Microsoft yesterday (Cumulative Update for Win 10 - KB3081424) and noted during the installation that no restore point was created. System Protection is ON and I am able to create restore points manually. Thus, this is only a minor annoyance since I can successfully create these points on my own. However, I would prefer for the system to do so when important updates from Microsoft come down. I guess it is possible that the update referenced above did not generate such a point but found that unusual since it is listed as a Cumulative Update.

Performance :: Scheduling System Restore Point Creation

Oct 11, 2015

I see that Win10 has deleted the function to schedule the creation of restore points! Supposedly it creates a new restore point before downloading updates (if the function is turned on; by default it is off!).

I like to schedule the creation of points every few days or each week to prevent viruses from corrupting things. This feature is so important; I can't believe they have hidden it, made it less functional, and turned it off by default!

Is there any way to run the creation button from the task scheduler or something to automatically schedule restore point creation?

Installation :: Restore To Earlier Point In Time

Nov 29, 2015

I set tried to set up the mail app. I was not suscessful. Would not sync. No mail from Outlook. I read how to delete the mail app and reinstall it from the shop. I ran the program to do that and it work. It removed the Mal and calendar app.

When I tried to go to the shop app, and down load the current mail app, as instructed, the shop will only stay open 3 seconds and then it will close. I rebooted the computer several times, no avail.

My question is how do I restore my computer to just before I removed the mail app.

I have a PC with a recovery partition which is for vista, which is now obsolete now Imhave moved up to Windows 10 via Windows 7.... never want to recover to vista...

would love over to create my own recovery partition, where pressing e.g. Fn11 during startup invokes the recovery process.....maybe this is too difficult...there is a program called AOMEI OneKey Recovery which promises to do such, or so it looks...

Unable To Use Instant Restore Point?

Aug 28, 2015

I was able to use Instant_Restore_Point under Win 8 (worked great), which I found here: [URL]

But I can't get it to run under Win 10, even after adding (in the appropriate place) these lines:

If instr(objOS.Caption, "Windows 10") Then
GetOS = "Windows 10"

And making the adjustment:If GetOS = "Windows 8" Or GetOS = "Windows 10" Then

How can I get this script to work?

Performance :: Any Way To Save One Specific Restore Point

Feb 10, 2016

I have restore point space limited to 2Gigs on my Tablet. I've noticed that when a new restore point is created at the top of the list, an old one is removed from the bottom of the list. Sooner or later, I will end up with totally new restore points. Is there a way to save one specific restore point, and not loose it? (without actually backing up (not an option on my Tablet) ).

Performance :: Restore Point - Property Page Error

Nov 29, 2015

When I manually try and make a restore point using the windows program it ends with a property page error.

It still does the restore point ok and seems to work all right if I need to use that point to restore.

No error notifications pop up using the System Restore Point shortcut tool or when system does a restore point when adding new programs or drivers.

So my best guess is the error is showing up because this page is open

Does it on two machines running Home 10586.14

Apps :: System Restore Doesn't Restore Uninstalled Software

Dec 16, 2015

Maybe I have a misunderstanding of how System Restore works. Yesterday I uninstalled a program that I'd like to now get back. The company that made the program no longer offers archive downloads for that program in particular. Today it occurred to me that I could do a System Restore to when the program was still on this laptop & all would be returned as it was.

The first 2 times I tried was a total fail for returning the program but when I went back to a week ago it was there. Something is missing & it errors asking for the old install software that doesn't exist anymore (the program was purchased it 2008).

Performance :: Can't Restore From System Image

Aug 20, 2015

I created a system image on a Seagate external hard drive using Windows 10 Home, and I created a restore disc for booting with an external BUFFALO DVD drive connected to a USB port. I went into the UEFI and set my BUFFALO drive as the first drive to be used for booting at power up or reset. When I restarted the computer, a message appeared saying "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD". I pressed a key. After a few minutes, the following screen appeared:

I used the down-arrow key to select US and hit enter. Then the following screen appeared:

I used the down-arrow key to select "Choose Device" and hit enter. Then the following screen appeared:

This screen gave me only two options: (1) Boot with the BUFFALO optical drive, and (2) Boot with the Solid State Drive which the HP Spectre x360 has (instead of a real hard drive). When I used the down arrow to select the BUFFALO optical drive, the screen that asks for the desired keyboard layout reappeared. When I selected US and hit enter, the screen that asks for a booting option reappeared. When I selected "Choose Device" and hit enter, the screen that gave me the option to boot with either my BUFFALO optical drive or the Solid State Drive reappeared. I found I could keep going around in circles like this, without ever having an opportunity to restore the computer with a system image I had created earlier.

Turned Off The Computer While In System Restore

Sep 4, 2015

So I was doing a system restore on my newly upgraded Windows 10. It was stuck at 46% so I restarted it (which was a stupid thing I know). After that the laptop won't go beyond the black screen. Whenever I boot the laptop the lenovo logo appears and the black screen after and that's it. I'm really worried now.
