Configuring Default Checkpoint type in Windows 10

Last week I was talking about Production Checkpoints in Windows 10.

When I talk about this to some people - they are concerned because they prefer our previous checkpoint behavior.  Fortunately, it is still available for people who want it.  If you open the virtual machine settings and select the Checkpoints page - you will see this:

 Here you can choose:

  • Whether to enable Checkpoints at all (on by default)
  • Whether to use Production or Standard checkpoints (default is Production)
  • Whether to use Standard checkpoints if Production checkpoints are not available (default is yes)

You can also change this through PowerShell by using "set-vm -CheckpointType".
