    Cannot create a restore point


    I'm not sure I'm in the right place, but when I go to create a restore point I get a message: The restore point could not be created for the following reason: The writer experienced a transient error. If the backup process is retired, the error might not reoccur. Please try again. First, I don't know "If the backup process is retired" means and I've tried over and over to create the restore and cannot. Please advise.

  3. Creating restore points automatically; can it be done?

    Hi Mark,

    It's good to see that you're interested to learn more about Windows 10 System Restore. Yes! There's a way for Windows 10 to create restore points automatically. All you have to do is to create your first restore point, then when something significant happens,
    such as installing a Windows Update or a new application. See the steps below to learn how:

    • Search for Create a system restore point.
    • Click on Configure, then choose Turn on system protection and
      OK.
    • Once done, choose Create, then type the description for restore point.

    We'll be looking forward to your feedback.

    Restore Points Failing to be Created


    Hello All, Brink -
    I've been using Brink's System Restore Point shortcut since Windows 7. It's very convenient.
    I have found in Windows 10 it occasionally doesn't actually create one even though I receive the success message. I've been double checking (defeats convenience of a shortcut) via the system protection link. If a new restore point hasn't been created I create one there ... sometimes that doesn't work.
    -
    Further investigation hasn't shown anything wrong (attached), yet I sometimes have to manually create the new restore point more than once to have it show up in the 'available restore points' list. It thus appears the shortcut method is not the problem, but ... (?)

    My thanks go out to all who read this and those who have suggestions. Cannot create a restore point :)

    Best,

    Yes, that's what I was doing when I get the message I typed above. That's the only way I know how to create a restore point and it is not working. Thanks.
