I am running into a problem using task scheduler to make automatic restore points. First let me say I swear I have done this before. But cannot seem to get it to work now. Also, I image my hard drive every other day. A full image.
I need to have several restore points a day. I prefer to have as many as I can have. I have allocated 15% of my C drive for restore points.
I need a restore point made each time the computer starts up. It may get restarted 2, 3, 4 or more times a day depending on what’s going on. I also need regular restore points made about every 3 hours, midnight – 3am – 6am – 9am – and so forth. Also when I install and uninstall something.
I have also set my system to include more areas of my system in each restore point than normal.
Now here is the problem. It will not do it. No matter how I do it or set it up I cannot get more than one or two restore points to generate.
Someone told me that Windows 7 (what I am using) will only make one restore point per every 7 days no matter what. This is where the “I swear I have done this before” comes in.
So what gives. Is this true or must I be doing something wrong. Thanks!
