Restore Point Creation

A restore point is used to reset a system to the status at it had at a certain time e.g. after the system is damaged by an installation or a virus. This action creates such a restore point when a related condition is met.


Beginning with Windows 8 Microsoft has changed the behavior of restore point creation. Windows will skip the restore point creation if any restore points have been created in the last 24 hours. The action will return successful in such a case.
