    Disable System Restore


    Hi,
    I need to do the following tasks in the System Restore:

    1. Set Max Usage = 0
    2. Delete all restore points
    3. Disable System Restore

    Should be using Command Line.
    1st and 2nd step I've no any idea how to do.
    For 3rd step:

    net stop srservice
    sc config srservice start=disabled
    REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore" /V "DisableSR" /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F
    REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore" /V "DisableSR" /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F

    although srservice does not work on Win10 :: The service name is invalid.

    This one I also found but does not work:
    REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SPP\Clients" /V "{09F7EDC5-294E-4180-AF6A-FB0E6A0E9513}" /T REG_MULTI_SZ /D "0" /F
    vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=C: /Maxsize=0GB

    Any advise?
    Thanks.

    :)

  2. Can't move files to external hard drive because of error.

    Tried the system restore and it said:

    System restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and settings were not changed.

    Details:

    System Restore could not access a file. This is probably because an anti-virus program is running on the computer.

    Temporarily disable your antivirus program and retry system restore.

    An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070005)

    I have windows defender (which I disabled for system restore) and no other antivirus.

    Disable System Restore

    Why are you trying to disable System Restore? Also why are you trying to do it in the Registry?

  6. vssadmin delete shadows /for=c: /all /quiet

    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\SystemRestore\SR" /Disable

    If you are concerned about services, those 2 are being used by SR.

    Thanks a lot TairikuOkami
    I'm tired of questions like "Why do you wanna customize that part" or "leave it as is"!!!
    Of course, I have some enough knowledge of what I wanna do.
    I'm a Windows user since MS-DOS 6 and Windows 3.1 and until now, I never used Windows System Restore!
    So what's the reason to keep it active? IF it's gonna break the Windows down, that's no problem, it's years I'm using a Windows with disabled System Restore!

    Disable System Restore

    Some one with less experience that you actually may want to know why an experienced user doesn't want to use system restore or some other function.

    Actually experienced users know what to not touch for a reason. Mucking about in those settings cause more harm than good. Same as thinking restoring everytime something gets screwed up is how managing a LAN group of machines fixes things.
