  1. System Restore not making restore point before updates.


    So why did Microsoft change this? If I remember correctly all previous versions would create a system restore point before doing Microsoft updates. Since 10 installed all updates that come in for me are downloaded and installed without a restore point. I had one last night that after the computer restarted something messed up. My display drivers were not recognized, and my resolution/disply was like a 1990s computer. I couldn't update again, nor fix it. I had to do a restore from one I created days ago. It worked, so I did some cleanup, and I was able to update again without issue, and now everything is OK, but dang, why no restore point made automatically before changing the system Microsoft? Now I know if I see an update coming I'm doing one before it installs.

    On a side note I read many threads (and I'm included) when 10s upgrade completed System Restore was off by default even though it was on in 7. I had to turn it on again. Luckily I know some about it, but what about people who don't? They're pretty much screwed if an update messes up their machine(s), and have no restore point to go back to.

  2. auto restore point

    Hi Bryan,

    System Restore automatically creates a restore point before the following events:

    • Application installation (provided the application utilizes an installer that is System Restore compliant). If the application install causes system problems, the user can restore the system to a state before the installation of the application.
    • AutoUpdate installation. AutoUpdate provides an easy way for users to download critical Windows updates. After the update is downloaded, the user can install the update on the system. If the user chooses to install the update, System Restore creates a restore
      point before the installation of the update begins.
    • System restore. For example, if a user accidentally chooses the wrong restore point, the user can undo the restore operation by choosing a restore point before the system restore took place. The user can then choose the correct restore point.

    Hope the information helps.

    Make sure you create a few system restore points before updating.

  4. System Restore not making restore point before updates.

    I couldn't find any info on why, but does anyone know if there is a way to make it do a restore point before updates? The best thing I came up with is to notify me when an update needs to restart my computer, and then I'll do a restore point first, and then let it reboot.
