New dSupport v2.6 Feature – Automatic System Restore Point Scheduling!
Automatic System Restore Point Scheduling:
Basically you can schedule up to 3 different system restore point schedules to be created. For each schedule, you can choose the time of day, and have it run daily or weekly. When the configuration is saved, or when dSupport is installed, it will create Windows scheduled tasks to launch dSupport at the pre-defined day/time, which creates the restore point and exits. The process is entirely silent and will be invisible to the user.
I actually created the feature for my own use. On my Windows 7 box I wanted to schedule tasks to do the restore point so I would have multiple shadow copies each day of the documents folder (which contain my programming code) instead of relying on Windows to make the restore points whenever it felt like it.
Optionally I’ve added the ability for the dSupport user themselves to view / edit the schedules you can create within dSupport’s main interface, but I actually did this for my own purposes and don’t recommend enabling that particular feature for just any user.
