Hi Everyone,

 

I have noticed that even though System Restore seems to be working, creating files in the System Volume Information folder at the scheduled times, those restore points do not show up in the System Restore program, so I would not be able to use them should I need them.

 

Any ideas on why or how to fix this?

 

If I create a restore point manually, that one will show up in the program.

 

Thanks for any help anyone can give me with this.

Just to update, I tried turning off System Restore and restarting it in hopes that it would fix it, but it did not.

 

I am pretty sure I have it set up correctly in Task Scheduler, but, maybe not and that is the problem, just not sure how to find out or what to do about it.

 

If anyone has any thoughts, please share them, I really hate not having daily restore points made.

 

Also, is there an alternative to System Restore that I can use in Windows 8 64 bit?

 

Erunt doesn't seem to be a viable solution as the program has not been updated in years. It will install, but I don't know about using it since it has been so long since it has been updated.

 

Anyone have any thoughts about that one?

Alternative to Windows system restore (or use both):  Tweaking.com - Registry Backup

I use this program on Windows 7, but it works on Windows 8 (x32 and x64) as well.  I schedule it to run every time that the computer starts up (takes 10 or so seconds as the Desktop loads) and I run it minimized.  You can restore the registry in normal Windows, safe mode, and if neither of these modes are available, you can restore the registry after booting from any live Linux Distro.  Nice program.
