    Loosing Windows 10 Restore Points


    I seem to be loosing my Windows 10 Restore Points.

    Here is my story:
    I manually created the 1st restore point on 8 Jan 2019
    I manually created the 2nd restore point on 11 Jan 2019
    In addition, I manually created a 3rd & 4th restore point two weeks later

    But, only the 3rd & 4th restore points show up (along with one done when a Windows update was performed).

    I have my system set to 92 GB max usage and my system says only 2.56 GB has been used.

    Does anyone know what is going on here.

    I would like to keep 2 months worth of restore points.

    :)

    Restore Point question


    I have restore point space limited to 2Gigs on my Tablet. I've noticed that when a new restore point is created at the top of the list, an old one is removed from the bottom of the list. Sooner or later, I will end up with totally new restore points. Is there a way to save one specific restore point, and not loose it? (without actually backing up (not an option on my Tablet) ).

    How to delete inactive System Image Restore Points in System Restore

    Windows 10 64-bit.
    When I click "show more restore points" in System Restore I see a bunch of old "system image restore points" that were deleted in past and do not correspond to any currently active restore points. Clicking any of these old restore points, I simply get an error message saying they could not be found, and to select another restore point instead.I would like to delete these restore points listings but have been unable to do so.
    So far, I have tried steps mentioned below without any luck :

    Disk Cleanup through (CLoosing Windows 10 Restore Points :) Properties
    Disable System Protection (OFF and ON) in System Protection for OS (CLoosing Windows 10 Restore Points :)
    Disk Space Usage to minimum (slider button all the way to the left then 'Delete all restore points for this drive'),
    Delete all shown Restore points in CCleaner (the problem ones do not show here),
    Reset Windows Backup to Default in Windows 10 with 'Reset_Windows_Backup.bat' utility.

    Any suggestions highly welcome.
