Hi,
Athan had asked me to create a restore point yesterday to check if my computer was still showing the restore point after a reboot. I did this and after the 1st reboot, it was fine, my restore point was stored. But i opened the system restore today, and its gone again!!!

So, i ran the disk cleanup on all the drives and deleted the restore points. After this, i created another restore point and i called it 'test2'. Everything was fine just like the 1st restore point i created and then, after a couple of reboots, NO RESTORE POINTS AGAIN. I just updated my BIOS and there is a restore point created for this by my computer, but dont know for how long it will be there :confused:

PS: I have a HP laptop, and they dint provide a Windows CD, but created a partition D:\ [HP_RECOVERY] which I am supposed to use incase of a system crash. But this drive is full, and I am unable to make any backup disks. Just letting u know cause this might be the problem

Is D being monitored by System Restore?
If so, and the drive is full, SR will shutdown, I believe.

C has lots of room left?

Turn off monitoring of D and try the test.

BTW SR will not back you out of a Bios update

hi,
i turned the monitoring off in D:\ and that seems to have solved the problem. All the system restore points are being stored properly now. Thanks a lot
