Can I turn off Automatic System Checkpoints on Windows XP?

I am having a problem with System Restore in Xp

My question ?

Is it possible to turn off the automatic  system creation of a restore point and leave me to create my own restore point manually each day ?

Hi Keith,


Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community Forums!!


If I understand you correctly, you need to disable automatic creation of system restore point on Windows XP computer and create own restore point manually.


There is no such options to disable the creation of system restore point form being created automatically, however you can create your own restore point manually.
