[required] -RestorePointType string The type of restore point: APPLICATION_INSTALL, APPLICATION_UNINSTALL, DEVICE_DRIVER_INSTALL, MODIFY_SETTINGS, or CANCELLED_OPERATION.

Installers, such as Windows Installer and InstallShield, use these conventions for the description text:
The product name follows the verb; for example: Installed AppName.
The product name can be used alone (AppName) or the product name and the company name may both be used (MyCompany AppName).
Create a system restore point called "SS64". Use the default APPLICATION_INSTALL restore point type:
PS C:\> checkpoint-computer -description "SS64"
Create a MODIFY_SETTINGS system restore point called "OntheDomain":
PS C:\> checkpoint-computer -description "OntheDomain" -RestorePointType MODIFY_SETTINGS
