Specifies an action that creates a snapshot of the current state of the data or its configuration. For example, the Checkpoint-Computer cmdlet creates a system restore point on the local computer.
Assembly: System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)
For consistency with other cmdlets that perform the same action, do not use a verb such as Diff for this action.
The verb portion of a cmdlet name specifies the action that is taken by the cmdlet and is specified by the Cmdlet attribute. For more information about the declaration syntax that is used to specify the Cmdlet attribute, see Cmdlet Attribute Declaration.
