    Howdy Folks! *Smile
    My new desktop (replacing the one that crashed and burned) has a different Restore Point configuration than I've see with older machines:
    The Restore Point Setup shows "Local Disk (DRestore Point Setup shows Local Disk (D:) as well as OS (C:) (System) :)" as well as "OS (CRestore Point Setup shows Local Disk (D:) as well as OS (C:) (System) :) (System)" and I can't turn off (DRestore Point Setup shows Local Disk (D:) as well as OS (C:) (System) :).
    I have: One 512GB NVME SSD + 1TB HDD
    Am I okay with this or does something need to be changed/fixed?
    Screenshots attached to tell the story in detail. (Note: Two images of System Properties reflect scroll bar moved down for last line)

    Much appreciation to all who read this and those who reply!

  2. How can I setup a RESTORE POINT in Windows 10?

    Hi,

    I realize that you want to create restore point manually. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Follow these steps to create a system restore point manually:


    • Press Windows key + R to get the run window.

    • Type rstrui and hit enter.

    • Click on System Protection.

    • Click Create to create a new system restore point manually.

    If you see protection off for Local disk C then click Configure and select the option turn on system protection. You also need to mention the disk space usage and then hit ok.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    System restore points are lost

    Hi Tom,

    I understand the frustration when Restore points are lost.

    Restore points are saved until the disk space System Restore reserves is filled up. As new restore points are created, old ones are deleted. If you turn off system protection (the feature that creates restore points) on a disk, all restore points are deleted
    from that disk. When you turn system protection back on, new restore points are created.

    Perform steps mentioned below and see if it helps.

    a: Press Windows key + X.

    b: Then click Command prompt(Admin)

    Type Vssadmin list shadowstorage
    c: Take note of what the shadow storage allocation is on the drive you're having issues with.

    d: Change the allocation by using the Vssadmin command, syntax:
    vssadmin resize shadowstorage /On=C: /For=C: /Maxsize=1G (where Maxsize=the amount of disk space you've allocated to System Restore points. In my case it was 20 GB



    e: In the case of the C: drive, the syntax would be VSSAdmin resize shadowstorage /On=C: /For=C: /Maxsize =20G, after increasing the size and rebooting my restore points were still intact and no longer being deleted.

    Please revert if you have any issues with Windows in future.

    Windows 10 automatic restore points

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Community, we understand your concern and we will try our best to help you resolve the issue.

    Before we proceed, I would like you to provide the information stated below:

    1) Have you installed any third party antivirus?

    2) Have you installed any third party registry optimization software?

    I would first suggest you to check if the “show more restore points” option is selected in the system restore options. If this option is not selected, it will show only the recent restore point created. Refer these steps:



    a) Press Windows key + F, type “Recovery” in the search box

    b) Click on the settings tile below the search box

    c) Click on the recovery tile and click “configure system restore”

    d) Click on the system restore button and click next

    e) By default, only the recent restore point will be displayed, click on the box against “show more restore points” below

    f) Now check.



    If the above step didn’t show the restore points, then I would suggest you to check the disk space allotted to restore points. If very less space is allotted to store restore points, then it will automatically delete the old restore points. Refer these steps
    to check:



    a) Press Windows key + F, type “Recovery” in the search box

    b) Click on the settings tile below the search box

    c) Click on the recovery tile and click “configure system restore”

    d) Click on “Configure” button and check the disk space allotted.

    Hope this information helps
