Seems like as good as place as any for this.
Now I like system restore! in the XP days it saved my bacon many times
In Vista SR runs off the scheduler with an MS provided template that I
have not adjusted in any way.
I am noticing that I am not getting any restore points set except the
manual ones or at install uninstall of programs.
Checking the scheduler I see SR's are being run and reported successful
for user WORGROUP/DVXXXXX$ I am logged in as Administrator and the SR is
being run under System group.
So I set the Restore Point time forward for an hour and waited....
after the time I checked NO notification but the schedule reported the
task completed correctly!
I have not mucked around with SR or the shadow volume both are
operating to spec I believe... so why are not the events being recorded.
If you like Sherlock Holmes mysteries this is one for you!
