According to Windows Help and Support, a restore point is a representation of a stored state of your computer's system files. Restore points are created by System Restore at specific intervals and when System Restore detects the beginning of a change to your computer. If no important system changes are made, restore points are created once per day.

However, there are cases in which you might need to change the creation of restore points frequency on your computer. To do that, you need to use the Registry Editor and edit the value of a key called RPGlobalInterval that can be found in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore.

If you are not very familiar with the Windows registry and you are not very sure on what you are doing, you might have problems when changing settings in the Windows Registry. This is why we created a tool called CSRF (Change System Restore Frequency).

CSRF is a small tool that allows you to change the frequency for the creation of restore points without having to use the Registry Editor.

You don't have to be a computer geek to know how to use it. You just run it, enter the desired interval between the creation of restore points and press the Change System Restore Frequency! button. That is it!

All you need to do is make sure you have administrator permissions as CSRF doesn't work if you are a standard user.
