    Hello Rocasan,

    Double check to make sure that System Protection is turned on for your Windows drive.

    Next, use the free program CCleaner to see what it shows for what restore points you may have like below.

    Hope this helps for now,

    In System Restore there is only one restore point created manually. Nothing for Automatic Restore Points.

    Normally System Protection creates a scheduled restore point only if no other restore points have been created in the last 7days, and before significant system events such as a program, Windows Update, or driver installation.

    Is your PC turned on long enough for a restore point to be automatically created. If it's turn off most of the time or not turn on for very long when running, then it may not have had a chance to create one.

    Double check to make sure that the SR task (middle pane) for SystemRestore (left pane) in Task Scheduler has not been disabled.

    In addition, check to make sure that Automatic Maintenance is turned on.

    Rocasan,

    Yes, you could create your own schedule to automatically create restore points when you like.
    In addition, you could use either below to make manually creating restore points as needed easier to do.

    They work in Windows 8 as well.

    It looks like the thread is going in the workaround direction without attempts to troubleshoot...

    Absence of automatic system restore (SR) points may be caused by either of the following:
    • Task Scheduler is not working
    • Automatic Maintenance (AM) and/or SR tasks are disabled
    • Not enough space dedicated to SR points


    So it's worth looking into these settings.

    1. SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8. If some files can't be restored, copy C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log to the desktop, zip it up and attach.

    2. Unzip the attached CMD-file, right-click, Run as administrator.

    3. Attach diag.txt from the desktop.

    To: Vadikan,

    I already had ran sfc /scannow twice and no errors found.

No System Restore Points in Performance & Maintenance
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.

Solved No System Restore points in Performance & Maintenance
I've been running Windows 8 since 10/27 and just noticed there were no System Restore points. Doesn't Windows 8 automatically create them when a significant event occurs, like Windows Update? I created one manually but would like to see Win 8 create them.
