Powershell – Easily create System Restore Points

Powershell

Hey did You know you can create a System Restore snapshot in Powershell ?

I didn’t until five minutes ago.  The Cmdlet name wasn’t one of the typical “GET” or “SET” ones,as such I missed it.

But I ran a GET-COMMAND this morning looking for some interesting CmdLets to learn and saw this one

CHECKPOINT-COMPUTER

And it’s about the easiest one to run!

CHECKPOINT-COMPUTER –Description “This is My System Restore Point”

It has to be run with Administrative Privledges and produces a nice simple status bar as is executes.

What does this mean to you?

That no matter what you do, you have an EASY way to trigger a System Restore Checkpoint.  A simple shortcut to a Powershell script to run it and cover your bases.

 

Powershell, stressfree for you
