Hi. When does windows xp sp2 automatically create system restore checkpoints? Is there a way to change or control the time it creates these automatic checkpoints? Thanks for any help.

Check out this article for full info

But i found this in it.

System Restore creates restore points on a regular basis even if you have not made any changes to the system. System Restore automatically creates these restore points:

every 24 hours of calendar time


every 24 hours your computer is turned on

If your computer is turned off for more than 24 hours, System Restore creates a restore point the next time you start the computer. The computer must be idle for a few minutes before System Restore creates a scheduled restore point.

You Can Use 'Scheduled Tasks" to set this up to do a restore point at certain times automatically. To use, go into your control panel then select Scheduled Tasks then click on the "Add a Scheduled task" then choose System Restore from the list of programs it gives you

The rest is pretty self explanatory...just follow the directions the wizard gives you
