  1. I do not understand how restore points work exactly.


    Hi,


    I am trying to use restore point and did a little experiment :


    1 Install WIN10 Pro

    2 Update the system

    3 Create a restore point

    4 Install Office Pro

    5 Restore point created in 3


    But Office is still installed!



    I thought that going back to a restore point will supress any program/driver installed ever since...

    :)

    This is not a pitch but a valid suggestion of a superior alternative.

    I do not understand how restore points work exactly.

    System restore point automatic create not working....need help.

    Were you seeing CAPI2 errors with Macrium & System Restore.

    And after enabling system protection.
    1) Does System Protection automatically create and populate checkpoints to list.
    Does System Protection create restore points when called by a program and populate checkpoints to list.

    2) I'd like to confirm whether my issue is unique to me or common.
    My issue is that I can manually create restore points okay and those manual created will populate to my list.
    Automatic restore points do not populate to my list. Albeit, Task Scheduler shows Last Run time change.
    Automatic restore points do not populate to my list e.g., with Windows Updates.
    When create restore point is called by a program. I see activity that suggest restore point is being created ...but, again the activity does not translate to an entry in my list.
