    Can you create a System Restore point from a batch file or

    Since Windows 8 is not creating System Restore points, apparently because I have a dual boot Windows 8 / Windows 7 setup, I'd like to schedule one every 3-4 days or so.

    Is there any way to run system restore from Command line or batch file or Powershell? If so then I could schedule it to run when I want.

    Seek and ye shall find!

    I found this after starting this thread: Use PowerShell to Back Up System State Prior to Making Changes

    So this will work in a PowerShell script: Checkpoint-Computer -Description "Periodic restore point"

    Only one can be created in 24 hours though.
