  1. what is the ideal size to save restore point?


    as seen in this image, mine is set to save with this size limit. should i increase it? i ask because few weeks ago when i tried to use restore option to revert to time when pc was working fine, and got error message and said it couldnt use it...maybe because the size i set wasnt enough to save restore point?

    i need to do it properly. ive decided to use external hard drive to save restore points becuase it has more memory than main drive.

    "align to Grid" grid Size: What is the grids size and how can I draw it!

    What I want to do: Create a desktop backround of gridlines that are synced to the "align to Grid"grid.

    What I'm going for: I am trying to create visual vertical and horizontal lines of Microsofts invisible "Align to grid" grid. (sidenote: Why????, Because i'm that guy who for some reason wants to actually see the grid as a desktop backround... nice neat little
    squares of joy! )

    1. What is the align to grid size default?

    2. What is the single positive or negative data value of the icon spaceing? Someone please explain what that single number is, where does it come from... What does that mean.... the single positive or negative data value of the icon spaceing... is it
    a combination of px X px, is it the x/y of the grid ....

    3. Is there an "Align to grid" template out on the web or do I need to create my own? has some person already done this?

    what is the ideal size to save restore point?

    Hi, the size of the space you allocate limits the number of restore points kept, as you will know.
    I allocated 6.85Gb, and that seems 75% used by 8 restore points.

    You may also have noticed some threads here about using restore points, and the various failures encountered in doing so. The error number reported is what you need, then you can search for that number for a possible explanation.

    There is a huge thread here with a fix (and it's supposedly solved in the Creator's build after an update, if I recall correctly) for 80070091, for example.

    The first- suggests you are saving system images to that drive- which seems a bad idea if it's an internal drive.

    The second- that seems a very small amount of usage- at a guess, you've no restore points.
