    Restore Points


    My restore points are being deleted. I usually keep 5. I looked the other day and only one was there. today I looked and there were none. Even the manually created ones were gone. I don't have a dual boot. My size is set to 45 gigs.

    Hello Clint,

    Have you defragged your HDD during this time? Some 3rd party defrag programs have been reported to delete your restore points when used.

    I've only used the defrag that came with Win 8. The restore points have disappeared after the defrag. I'm not sure , but I think they leave when I reboot.

    Does this look right? I'm still getting my restore points deleted for some reason.

Just thought I'd do a system restore point to get over a problem in another thread here and - there aren't any! Shouldn't windows automatically make them? I've had this problem for a year with windows 8 (now 8.1) and I think I even had it with 7. Before that it never seemed to be a problem.
