Windows 10 - How to create a restore point in PowerShell
Not all PC users are accustomed to the fact that in the new operating system, they can fully use "PowerShell", and in vain, since this application is very practical to use. For this reason, we decided to tell you how to create a restore point in PowerShell in such a way that it fully functions and had the ability to come to the aid of any system failure.
The main advantage of this method is that it can be adjusted for itself in terms of creating a recovery point, which is very convenient. In addition, this method is also good because if you often: install non-stable updates, use different software, and in general, work with the OS at maximum load, it will easily come to your rescue at any time. Also, it is not unimportant to play in the creation of a restore point and the fact that its creation process itself occurs at the moment when the script is executed. And the fact that it is possible to bring to the "Desktop" a shortcut that has the ability to restore the OS in just a couple of clicks and can not be said, since this is a self-evident action.
In order to go to the process of creating a recovery point in Windows 10, you need to check whether the function that is responsible for this action is enabled.
If everything is enabled, then go to the process itself... On behalf of the administrator, you need to open a console called "PowerShell", then paste the following command into it: Checkpoint-Computer -Descri rtion "My recovery point" -RestorePointType "APPLICATION_INSTALL"
If you want to consider the command used in more detail in order to be able to use it somehow, then we look at the list of commands below:
• Descrition - allows you to specify a description of the recovery point being created.
• RestorePointType - one of the types of the restore point, which is divided into sub types:
• MODIFY_SETTINGS - allows you to make changes to the settings.
• DEVICE_DRIVER_INSTALL - installs the drivers.
• APPLICATION_INSTALL - the default option used by the operating system that installs the application.
• APPLICATION_UNINSTALL - allows you to delete an application.
• CANCELLED_OPERATION - allows you to cancel the actions you performed.
It is necessary to understand that from the above-described "keys", you can choose whatever you like! In addition, by default, the settings in the OS are set so that create a restore point in PowerShell is possible no more than once in 24 hours. But if you need another time interval, then we know how to bypass the "standard" settings.
In order to configure all time intervals to fit your needs, use the "regedit" command to open the registry editor and already in it, go here on this path: HKLM \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ SystemRestore. As soon as you find yourself in the last subsection, you need to create a new 32-bit parameter of type "DWORD", which should be called "SystemRestorePointCreactionFrequency", and already in this parameter you need to set the number of minutes that will satisfy all your requirements in terms of point creation Recovery in Win 10.
We draw your attention to the fact that the default value for the operating system is 1440, which is equal to the decimal system of the calculus, accordingly, you will need the value in "1440" either to increase or decrease.
