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

Yes, Windows 10 Home.

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,

Correct, we do hope to have this working on home edition soon.

Justin,

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