How to Automate System Restore in Vista

Windows is prone to external attacks or viruses, which may destroy or delete important data stored on your computer. The system restore feature in Windows helps you create backups of a particular day. However, creating restore points manually may be time consuming. This task can be automated using the task scheduler feature from Windows Vista. Once done, a restore point can be set as frequently as required. To do so:

  1. Click ‘Start’ type ‘Task Scheduler’.
  2. In the left pane, expand ‘Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows’ and click ‘System Restore’.
  3. In the right pane, double-click the task and click ‘Triggers’.
  4. Click ‘New’ enter appropriate details as to when system restore would run.
  5. Once done click ‘OK’.
