    where is automatic System restore windows 10

    I would like to do system restore , but I have not created system restore points. I looked in the system restore and there are no automatic restore points. When I had windows 8 and XP the system used to create restore points. What happens in Windows 10?
    Are there any system restore points in Windows 10 ? If the system does create restore points automatically, where does one see those points? Because I do not see them. If I can restore the system to a week back , I will not have any problem with word. Please
    let me know where can I find System Restore point in Windows 10 when they are not created by me.

    Lumbco,

    Double check the steps again, and make sure that System Protection is still turned on for your C: drive.

    I followed your procedure again and still did not get a new restore point on startup.

    I triple checked each step when setting up your procedure, the only point I am unsure about is the administrator setting. I am the only user of my PC so am I automatically the administrator?

    It sounds like you should be an administrator, but you can use an option in the tutorial below to verify.

    Account Type - Determine in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    As a test, run the command below in an elevated command prompt to see if it works for you to create a restore point. It's what the tutorial uses for the task.

    Code: wmic /Namespace:\\root\default Path SystemRestore Call CreateRestorePoint "Automatic Restore Point", 100, 7[/quote]
    Please go ahead and post screenshots showing your task settings from the tutorial to see if anything may stand out, and also post screenshots showing your list of restore points in system protection.

    Thank you Brink.
    I used your tutorial and confirmed that I am registered as administrator.
    I then ran the wmic command as an administrator and confirmed that it generates a restore repoint. To make sure I ran it again, screen shot attached.

    Having looked at the post from psperson , I think that he may have a point. To test this I switched the PC off and on again and checked the Restore Point 'current usage', it was 8.15 Gb.
    I made a manual RP and the usage went up to 8.16 Gb so it appears that each point consumes 0.01Gb.
    I switched the PC off and on and the usage went up to 8.17Gb, but no extra RP was listed.
    I repeated this and the usage went up to 8.18GB, still no additional RP was listed.
    To be extra sure I wanted to disable System Protection on my C drive and repeat the switch off/on. This should have resulted in no increase in usage, but a message warned me that all restore points would be deleted.
    Could this mean that your procedure to create a RP at switch on does work, but on my PC the newly created restore point cannot be displayed?

    Automatically Create System Restore Point at Startup in Windows 10

    Windows will only allow the creation of a certain amount of restore points each day. You may have used your allotment. Change registry as in code to allow unlimited restore points in Windows. Code: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore] "SystemRestorePointCreationFrequency"=dword:00000000[/quote]

    Actually I was able to create the restore point by running task within scheduler, but it does not run at startup. *Sad

    The task is not limited by how many restore points it can create. It will always create a restore point at startup. If your set maximum storage size in system protection runs out, then the oldest restore point will automatically be deleted to free up space for a new one.

    Just to verify. "Startup" is after a restart or shutdown, and not for resume from sleep or hibernate.

    It looks like you had restore points created from your screenshot. The created restore point by this task at startup is only displayed in the location of your screenshot.

    When you turn off system protection, it will delete all restore points by default. This is why you got the warning message.

    Hello spicy, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    Just to verify:

    1) Be sure you did step 1.

    2) In step 4E, you would select "Windows 8.1" instead of "Windows 10".

    3) Double check to make sure all the steps were done exactly in the tutorial. Especially the command in step 8.
