Is there a way to have a restore point created daily upon first bootup (I
turn my system off each night).
Thanks!

LMO,

It's possible using WMI script. Here is a compiled program.

set SRP = getobject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore")
CSRP = SRP.createrestorepoint ("this is a test", 0, 100)

Thanks. When a new restore point is created, does it replace previous
points? That is, if I put the restore point program in startup so that a new
point is created for each re-boot, will the previous points be deleted or
replaced?
Thanks again!

Print the list of all available System Restore points to a file:

LMO,

It works the same way as you create the point manually. The previous restore
points are not deleted by this procedure, but all the other general rules of
System Restore applies.

General Info about System Restore:

In case of low disk space, System Restore deletes the snapshots in FIFO
basis. And the older points are deleted after the TTL (Time to Live) is
expired. The restore point is deleted because 90 days is the default time to
live.
