    Arrow Feedback: System Restore Manager for Windows 7

    System Restore Manager for Windows 7 lets you:

    1. Create a Restore Point on the fly, by clicking the Create Button
    2. Restore your Windows PC to a prior restore point. Just select a Restore Point from the list and click the Restore Button. This will Restart your computer and launch the Restore Process
    3. See all the available restore points
    4. Selectively remove Restore Points you don’t want and save the one’s you want
    5. Just select a Restore Point from the list and click the Delete Button
    6. Select a Drive and change the maximum amount of disk space to use, System Restore can use. On Windows 7, the default is 5% of available disk space.
    7. Change the System Restore Point Creation Interval. On Windows 7, the default is 24 Hours
    8. Change the Restore Point Time to Live. The default is 90 days,on Windows 7.


    Known Issues:

    1. Settings are not stored in this version, due to limitations in querying certain items.
    2. Dates do not always show correctly. When created they show a day ahead of current date.

    Visit : Windows System Restore Manager HomePage.

    System Restore Manager has been developed by TWCF member L.W for the Windows Club and has been tested on Windows 7, but may work on other Windows versions too.

    UPDATE: Nice video tutorial made here:

    NOTE: Since its developer is not around, it may not be possible to give support for this tool.

    The options to change Drive Size, Restore Point Interval and Restore Point Time to Live.

    I did not add those to QRM Plus Manager
    Quick Restore Maker is the first version of QRM, but a very basic app that only created Restore Points.

    So, basically System Restore Manager is a replacement for the other 2? The only reason I ask is becuase I like it and will prolly replace the other 2 programs with System Restore Manager. I love the apps and I use them all the time. All the time? Yep... at least 10 different PCs a day...

    Thank for the great apps!!

    Yeah - actually the app developed in stages as and how we got the ideas

    I use Quick Restore Maker more often as I need to create one instantly - frequently. But if you need to manage restore points, I think you can skip QRM+ and use this Restore Manager which lets you also customize certain additional settings.

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.
    
    For example:
    
    <configuration>
        <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
    </configuration>
    
    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.
