    Restore points being deleted


    Hi folks, for reasons I can't explain my restore points keep getting deleted despite having System Protection turned on.

    I first notice the missing restore points earlier this week so I created a manual one and now it's gone too. There were no Windows updates to my PC between now and then. And between when I create the manual restore point and noticing it now missing was only 3 days.

    Anyone else seeing this? Thoughts?

    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 (CRestore points being deleted :) Properties
    Disable System Protection (OFF and ON) in System Protection for OS (CRestore points being deleted :)
    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.

    Hi.

    If you have a complete backup image, I would clear all your restore points first.

    The deletion of restore points are generally caused by any one of the following by-design conditions:

    1) You run out of disk space on the system drive or on any one of the available non-system drives, and System Restore stops responding and stops monitoring your system.
    2) You manually turn System Restore off. (not in your case.)
    3) A restore point reaches an age of 90 days. The restore point is then deleted because 90 days is the default time to live.

    To resolve this, adjust the maximum storage allocation. Follow the steps listed below:

    1) Press Windows key + W on the keyboard to search Settings, type “System” in the Search box and then click System from the list of results.
    2) Click System protection in the task pane.
    3) Under Protection Settings click to select Local Disk (CRestore points being deleted :) (System) and then click Configure.
    4) Under Disk Space Usage, move the Max Usage slider to the right to increase the disk space usage for System Restore points.

    Note: If the protection is turned on for additional drives you might consider increasing the Max Usage for those drives as well.

    Does this help you?

    No problem.

    Follow these steps:

    1) Type services.msc in the Run dialog box or in the Search bar.
    2) Open the Services window.
    3) Find the Volume Shadow Copy item from the list of services.
    4) Make sure Volume Shadow Copy is running: check the “Status” column corresponding to this item. If it’s not running, click Start the service from the left in order to start it.

    Delete existing and create new Restore Points. Let me know.

    Thanks *Smile
