Restore Point Creator

With a heavy heart I have come to the conclusion that I’m going to discontinue this program. System Restore is just not reliable to use in case something does go wrong with your system. To keep supporting this program despite all of the issues that people have with System Restore I feel is a disservice to my users; they certainly deserve better.

I have fought with Microsoft System Restore for long enough and I’m just sick and tired of it. People have been reporting issues with System Restore not working for them and worst of all, System Restore not being able to restore a system back to a working state which makes System Restore completely unreliable for the purpose that it was made for.

At this point I recommend using Macrium Reflect, it’s a free solution for most people and will be guaranteed to be able to restore your system to a known working state. Yes, it takes a lot more effort than using System Restore since it requires you, the user, to create the disk images but it is far more reliable than System Restore and is 100% guaranteed to work every single time you need it to work.

For those users who have stuck by me for all these years, it’s been a fun ride. I thank each and every one of you. Unfortunately it’s time to get off of this bronco and let this program go.

For those of you who want an additional rant about all of this… open the spoiler and read below.

Open Source Code Repositories
I have decided to make all source code for Restore Point Creator open to the public to view under the GPLv3 License. If someone wants to take over this… garbage heap of a program, go head. You will have a hell of a lot of people complaining that System Restore doesn’t work for them, that their systems lose Restore Points for no good reason, and general hate mail. You might even have people tell you that you’re less than human and other such derogatory things. You have been warned.

OK, I’ve relented… here’s the download for the installer. No, this doesn’t mean that I’m going to support this program again. Install Restore Point Creator.exe
