Change when System Restore points are created. To make these changes you must open the Task Scheduler. Click ‘Start’ and enter:Task Schedulerand press the ‘Enter’ key.
In the upper left expand the ‘Task Scheduler Library’ (Task Scheduler Library \ Microsoft \ Windows)and scroll down to and open (click on the) ‘SystemRestore’ folder.
The middle pane displays the name of the scheduled task is ‘SR’.
You will see 6 tabs: General, Triggers, Actions, Conditions, Settings and History.
Next, click on the ‘Triggers’ tab.
You should see 2 entries: 1) Daily, At 12:00AM every day, Status = Enabled 2) At startup, At system startup, Status = Enabled
Obviously the ‘Daily’ at the top of the list is set to run a 12:00AM in the morning, not much good since you’re not very likely to have your computer on a midnight. So I’ve added another ‘New’ daily task set to run at 4:45PM.
You can change these setting or add new System Restore (SR) tasks by opening the properties command in the toolbar. Click ‘Action’ and in the drop down list select ‘Properties’.
I’ve also edited the 12:00AM task trigger to run at 12:00PM (out for lunch time). Click ‘OK’ and ‘OK’ to save your changes.
In the Menu bar click File / Exit to close the task scheduler.
