boltsink2303 Posted September 29, 2007 Share Posted September 29, 2007 :HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore is the key where you find allof System Restore's settings. all the settings in the following list are REG_DWORD values:CompressionBurst. This value specifies the idle time compression in seconds.That is theamount of time to compress data after the computer becomes idle. System Restore cancompress data for the amount of time specified, and then it must stop until after the nexttime the computer becomes idle.DiskPercent and DSMax. These values together specify how much disk space SystemRestore uses. System restore uses the greater of the two values. Thus, for hard diskssmaller than 4 GB, System Restore uses 400 MB, which is the default value of DSMax. Forhard disks larger than 4 GB, System Restore uses 12 percent, which is the default value ofDiskPercent.DSMin. This value specifies the minimum amount of free disk space that System Restorerequires during the installation process. This value also specifies the minimum amount ofdisk space that System Restore needs to reactivate and resume the creation of restorepoints after Windows XP disabled it due to low disk space.RestoreStatus. This value indicates whether the last restore operation failed (0x00),succeeded (0x01), or was interrupted (0x02).RPGlobalInterval. This value specifies the amount of time in seconds that System Restorewaits between creating system checkpoints. The default value is 24 hours, or 0x15180.RPLifeInterval. This value specifies the time in seconds that System Restore keeps restorepoints before removing them from the computer. The default value is 0x76A700, or 90 days.RPSessionInterval. This value specifies the amount of time in seconds that SystemRestore waits before it creates the system checkpoints while the computer is turned on. Thedefault value is zero, disabling this feature. You can change this value to 0xE10 to create arestore point every hour that the computer is in use. On a computer that you customizeoften, such as a lab computer, you might create a restore point every hour.ThawInterval. This value specifies the amount of time in seconds that System Restore waitsbefore it reactivates itself after adequate disk space becomes available. Start the SystemRestore user interface, and it reactivates immediately.The remaining settings you find in SystemRestore aren't useful to customizeand Microsoft warns inno uncertain terms that you shouldn't change them. However, you can disable System Restore bysetting DisableSR to 0x01, and doing so doesn't remove existing restore points like it does whenyou disable System Restore in the user interface. Editing the remaining settings can do bad thingsto your computer's performance, so limit yourself to the settings I described . Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
