How To Turn Off System Restore In Windows 7

Windows utilizes a restore utility that backs up selected files automatically to the C:\_Restore folder. This means that an infected file could be stored there as a backup file, and VirusScan will be unable to delete these files. You must disable the System Restore Utility to remove the infected files from the C:\_Restore folder.

System Restore is a built-in feature in Microsoft Windows that allows the user to revert their computer's state (including system files, installed applications, Windows Registry, and system settings) to that of a previous point in time. It can be used to restore computer to earlier data if your computer runs into issues.

By default, System Restore is turned on in all versions of Windows 7 including Home Premium, Ultimate and Professional. However, you may encounter System Restore greyed out issue or something alike. In other words, System Restore is disabled and you cannot turn it on. To turn on System Restore in Windows 7, you have to fix this issue first.

? Note: As restore points are created regularly, it will take a large amount of space on your computer. To prevent low disk space issue, it is a good idea to adjust the maximum disk space used for system protection. As space fills up, the older restore points will be deleted automatically to make room for new ones.

AOMEI Backupper Standard is a free backup and restore software which allows you to create a full system image backup. The image backup will protect everything on C drive including your personal files and other data. It supports you to backup system to a safer place like external hard drive, NAS, cloud drive, etc. And it will protect any File System detected by Windows instead of only NTFS.

After creating system backup, you can click Restore at the main interface of AOMEI Backupper to restore your system to the previous state if there is any problem with your system. If you want to deploy your system image to multiple computers within LAN, you will need the image deployment software AOMEI Image Deploy (AID).

To make a summary, turning on System Restore in Windows 7 is not enough to protect your computer, you still need supplementary protection. AOMEI Backupper is a perfect choice. With system image backup created by AOMEI Backupper, you can easily restore your computer to a previous state even when your computer is unbootable.

System Restore is a usefu feature built-inWindows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10, 11 that allows you to restore your computer to an earlier date where it works fine. And it will include the installed programs and its settings, Windows Registry, necessary system files.

Normally, Windows will create system restore points with System Restore feature automatically before installing new software, updating a driver, installing Windows updates, etc. If there are no such events, the system restore point will be created by every 7 days.

Then, when your computer runs slowly or stop responding, you can restore from a system restore point. This operation will not affect your personal data, such as, documents, pictures, etc. But the recently installed apps and drivers will be uninstalled. And the longer you use it, the more space it takes up, which will slow down your computer to some extent.

In addition, it becomes useless when system crashes or disk crashes. Because it does not contain system and all the boot files that are required to boot Windows. At this time, you need a complete system backup Windows 10 created by backup and restore software. Thus, it's wise to turn off system restore in Windows 10/8/7 and schedule backup system in Windows 10.

System restore works in some situations, such as, your computer slow down or stop responding, but it will occupy much disk space for a long time use. And it does not work when the operating system or the disk crashes.

All the restor points are stored on corresponding partitions, thus it will be damaged if the partition goes wrong. And system restore point does not contain the system and all boot-related partitions required to start.

For these reasons, you can turn off system restore in Windows 10/8/7. Then, you can create a system image with AOMEI Backupper Professional to replace the restore point. For server users, you could use AOMEI Backupper Server.

A User logged in as the Administrator for Windows 7 Ultimate, unintentionally turned off the System Restore feature when trying to perform a System Restore. After this occurred, the Local Admin User was unable to reenable System Restore, and was presented with a notification that "System Restore has been turned off by your system administrator."

Then I run it as an administrator, and it says that the command completed successfully, but when I go to Computer -> Properties -> System Protection it still shows that system restore is on for the drive.

Remember that System restore uses the volume shadowing service. So if you want to totally disable this functionality, first disable the volume shadowing service. Then there are commands to manipulate the number of snapshots present on a system and delete them or even disable the functionality. Sorry I don't remember them off hand but check the microsoft site to get the commands used to manipulate the snapshot functionality.

vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=c: /maxsize=2GB - Sets the shadow storage for drive C to 2 Gigabyte. May delete existing restore points starting with the oldest if space is not sufficient to store all System Restore points

Normally, Windows will create these system restore points automatically before certain events, i.e., installing new software, updating a driver, installing Windows updates, etc. If none of these events occur, Windows will create a restore point every seven days.

In terms of files, System Restore will save a copy of a file or folder when it is modified, but only when a restore point is created. You can then restore a previous version of the file or folder by simply right-clicking on the file or folder.

By default, System Restore should already be enabled on Windows unless it was turned off manually. To enable System Restore, we need to open the System Protection tab. You can do this in one of two ways. Note that the below instructions will work on Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 10.

Whatever percentage you use, just make sure the value is greater than 1000 MB or 1 GB as a minimum. Note that each GB will be able to hold anywhere from 1 to 3 restore points, depending on what you have on that partition.

If you want to reduce the amount of space system restore is using on your system, just adjust the slider to a lower percentage. In addition, you can click the Delete button to remove all of the current restore points for the drive. This way, you can keep system protection enabled, but clear up some space if you are running out of hard disk space.

As previously mentioned, I do not recommend turning off system protection unless you know what you are doing and already have another backup solution in place. If you have any questions, feel free to post a comment. Enjoy!

On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press Enter. (If Repair your computer isn't listed as an option, then your computer doesn't include preinstalled recovery options, or your network administrator has turned them off.)

The following tools can help you uninstall or roll back software changes, repair Windows startup files, and restore your system from an earlier backup. If none of those suggestions fix the problem, you can reinstall Windows 7.

You can use System Restore from the System Recovery Options menu. It's just like running System Restore normally, with one exception: System Restore can't create new restore points in this mode, so you can't undo a restore operation. However, you can run System Restore again and choose a different restore point, if one exists.

On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press Enter. (If Repair your computer isn't listed as an option, then your computer doesn't include preinstalled recovery options, or your network administrator has turned them off.)

When you restore your computer from a system image, the contents of your hard disk are replaced with the contents of the system image. This means that any changes you've made, programs you've installed, or files you've saved after the system image was created will likely be lost unless you have a recent backup of your data.

Reinstalling Windows 7 will delete any programs you've installed and will restore the default Windows settings. You'll need to restore your user files, and reinstall any programs you've installed using the original installation discs or files.

You will not be able to restore your computer if the restore feature is turned off or if Windows Vista is unbootable. Go to Download restore disk and see how to use Easy Recovery Essentials to restore your PC.

System Restore can take a snapshot of the system files and the Windows registry and saves them as Restore Points. When an install failure or data corruption occurs, System Restore can help return the system to working condition without having to reinstall the operating system.

If the System Restore is interrupted, the system files or registry backup restore could be incomplete. System Restore sometimes is stuck or Windows 10 Reset takes a lot of time, and one is forced to shut down the system. It can make the computer system unbootable.
