Hashcat never creates restore point
Restore points do not work the way you think they do. Restore points happen at specific positions in the keyspace, and the positions that can trigger restore points depend on the attack base/mod, computing device size/speed/count, workload and chunksize tuning values, etc. A list of 10 million words, with rules, and -w 3, and against a slower algorithm will be VERY bad for restore points, per my post earlier in the thread. Increased workload/tuning values(-w 3), small wordlists(10M), and slow algorithms(2100) ALL exacerbate this issue, meaning you have setup almost a perfect storm for long times between restore points.
