I've noticed that my system doesn't see to be making very many restore points. Right now there are only three. Oddly yesterday it showed several more, all earlier than the current ones. They're gone now. The earliest restore point left is from four days ago.

So far as I can tell from Task Scheduler it should be making restore points every night at midnight, but it seems it's only making them when Windows updates. It's not on every night at midnight, but it is on at least three times a week. I did notice that the "Wake Computer from Sleep" box was not checked.

I think I'm more concerned though about the number of restore points being saved, and my system's apparent tendency to discard even recent ones. How do I control the retention of restore points?

Thanks,

Ray
