System Restore Help or Clarification Needed

The only restore points that appear in the System Restore pane are the ones I created from the System Restore pane in the System Restore Menu. I have named them "manual" and they all show up.

Yet, if I look in the System Volume Information folder (I unhid it) I see restore files that were created later than any of my "manual" restore points by SR from Task Scheduler. The dates and times agree with those successful runs of SR in Task Scheduler.

Example: The last Restore Point showing in the System Restore menu is 11/18/2013.

SR was run successfully on 11/19 11/20 and 11/21. There are corresponding files in the System Volume Information folder for these dates and time run.

Why are there not restore points for the above dates in the System Restore pane?
I have a virus free system. I have some other programs running fine in Task Scheduler.

I have run vssadmin and shadow storage checks out fine. There is plenty of room in the System Restore reserved area.

The only thing I can think of is that Win 8 is said to have a 7-day restriction on creating restore points automatically. I believe it is 7 days from the last restore point. But if that is true, why is SR putting daily files in System Volume Information folder?

I spent a week installing and tweaking programs, data and settings for this new computer I am on. I'm hesitant to test a System Restore for fear there might be some corruption in the System Restore process which could cause me to have to reinstall.

Help would be appreciated. Thank you.
