Solved Creating a Restore Point via Task Manager.....

Can't read it the error message :( Try using snipping tool to just take a picture of the window you want rather than the whole screen another time.

It looks like though you didn't open Powershell as administrator. You need to right click and select "Run as Administrator".

Don't worry we will get the solution eventually...

RECOVER_MAGNIFIER.png

well Adam,

it is not because i took a PRTSCRN of the full screen, even on my 32 inch i cannot read the text

I took a PRTSCRN, put it in Paint and used the magnifier, hopefully you can see it know. Not too big, otherwise we get the same problem

Do try the snipping tool - you can just take a picture of the specific window and save it. No need for paint. Anyway this is just about readable.

You have 3 within 3 minutes yesterday at about 18:30 (numbers 73,74,75) so the script is working.

Question is does it work if you stop the task and then run it again? I don't mean click on the vbs script I mean stop and then run the task from within task scheduler.

Try to do this, wait a couple of minutes and then look in powershell to see if the restore point is made.

Just a thought, if the task is not ending after it has made the restore point we need to end it in task scheduler (Stop the task if it runs longer than: 1 hour)and also to make extra safe if a second instance is invoked then end the previous (Stop the existing instance). This should help if your PC is turned off at the scheduled time and also if the task is still running on the second day..

I think it will take a few days to make sure it is running right.

Good luck.

Well Adam i had to end it myself, even if "stop after 1 hour" was clicked. (I Always put in 1 hour for every program that runs)

No new restore point in the Recovery menu.

in the GetRestorePoint no new files.

have to leave right now, be back on Thursday 16h, so for you probably 10AM.


I say this so you will not think i am not interested when i do not answer.


thanks

Jeff

I'll test it with task scheduler. Something must be wrong with the set up if the script works. I'll upload the task scheduler exported xml if it works in a day or two.

@Brink the original script didn't work in Windows 8 - we are testing with a new one based on another of your tutorials and it works. I already put the updated script in the comments in 7F tutorial. Something is up with Jeffs Task Scheduler entry that is all.

@Jeff I have tested with the task scheduler set-up below and it works fine. Please compare your task scheduler entry as we found the script is good. Perhaps you didn't have the script set as Configure for Windows 8.1 - I'm not sure what setting exactly.

Alternatively you could copy this into notepad and save as RestorePoint.xml and import it into task scheduler. You will only need to change the path of the vbs file and the scheduled time which I have set to 10:20.

This is the task scheduler xml

Oops, yes, it certainly works for me. I didn't notice the update, thanks.

Only difference is that I had this dialog set in the task settings. I don't know if it exists in Windows 7 as it doesn't appear in the screen shot in step 6 of the tutorial one way or the other.

Anyway i Always find this here:

C:\users\swa\appdata\local\Microsoft\internet explorer\recovery\last active

nothing else
That path is for the tabs you had open in your last Internet explorer session - it is nothing to do with restore points which are stored in C:\System Volume Information\.

A Look Into IE?s Reopen Last Browsing Session Feature Internals | Ramblings On Windows Development

This folder is hidden and you will not have access to it so easiest was to see your restore points is with the Get-ComputerRestorePoint powershell command.

Please post the results from this and your complete task set-up and history if it is still not working. Double check also you are using the new script as it works for me.

ok Adam,

hereby the History

and Get etc....

which still remains very small.......

i appreciate the work you invest in this, but i am giving up on it.

I really work hard and go on the internet during work, although i should not.

It really takes too much time for me, and it probably is my fault....

Hope you understand

Jeff

ok guys, me again, although i wanted to give up, but cannot let go...

So today Sunday a bit more time.

This is what happened:

Brink informed me to read this thread: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...u-windows.html

which i did.

Overthere it is said to put the downloaded/extraxted file in C:\WINDOWS, so i transferred the file from the Program Files to the Windows folder.

Changed the location of the file in the Task Scheduler (actions) to C:\WINDOWS, put in the hour of 13.30h local time Belgium and kept on looking when the program would start. But for me it did not start.......nothing happened.... (was away for a few minutes)

So i restarted the program manually, but nothing happened right away, so i restarded it again.

As you can see averything ran, the manually started both times did run with a difference of 3 seconds.

Did start a manually create restore point before that, to have on at 13.22h.

So right now i guess it depends on where you put the file in order to work.

Will try this afternoon the same with the option of Adam and see what gives.

Jeff

P.S.

with many thanks to Shawn and Adam

Did let it ride again at 14.40 automatically.
