does 'Patch My PC' really create Restore Points?
« on: January 25, 2019, 06:09:16 PM »
Hi,

I originally posted this same subject on January 3 and someone named Justin Chalfort tried to help me by asking me to send a copy of my  'patchmypc.log'.  At that time I didn't think I could figure out how to do it but then I discovered how too.

That being said I am attaching a copy of that log from a few days ago.  Maybe it will shed some light on why a System Restore point is not being created when 'patchmypc' says it is doing it prior to updating a program.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

2harts4ever

We are tracking an issue where the restore points may not work on home edition.

Hi Justin,

I take from this response that I am not the only one having this restore problem.  ;)   Hopefully you can get to the bottom of it because I did like the idea that a restore point is supposed to be made automatically before every update.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Thanks and regards,

Great .... I look forward to it.  I do enjoy the program and how simple it is to use.

I also have this problem with create a restore point option never actually creating a restore point.
