      Just a minor annoyance that has been happening in SDIO for a long time.

      I get the message up the top that: System Restore Points Are Disabled

      But every time I check, System Restore points are NOT disabled.

      can you check the following value:

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows NT\\CurrentVersion\\SystemRestore\RPSessionInterval

      and let me know the exact windows version where you see the discrepancy.

      RPSessionInterval DWORD Value @
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore

      is 0.

      I guess it should be 1 even though System Restore is enabled and working.

      Edit: Changing RPSessionInterval to 1 fixed it.

      Could it be that the RPSessionInterval DWORD Value is obsolete?

      could be. what windows version are you looking at?

      Windows 11.

      I’ve been experimenting with this and switching the system restore on and off doesn’t seem to update the registry or the wmi class so I’ll have to keep exploring…

      I switched off system restore points via System Properties, switched it on again, did this a couple of times and now the registry entry is correctly reflecting the system restore state. I don’t know why that worked.

      No worries, Glenn.

      At least I know that I can update RPSessionInterval DWORD Value to reflect System Restore’s correct state.

      Windows 11 has changed RPSessionInterval back to 0 again, yet System Restore is still enabled.

        Windows is up to something. I’ll have to keep exploring.

      It’s not a big problem.
      I just thought that I would mention it.

      I opened SDIO yesterday only to find the message about System Restore being disabled, and sure enough, the RPSessionInterval DWORD Value had reverted back to 0.

      I going to change the check so that under Windows 11, SDIO will assume system protection is enabled. If selected, it will attempt to create a restore point which may or may not succeed.
