    Sytem Restore points frequently disappearing


    I've yet to detect a pattern but this is getting very annoying. Just went into System Protection to check if the several SRs that were there a week or so ago are still present - and they're not. I've had several reboots and Win 10 updates in that period, but they always used to survive those, as they are of course meant to.

    All settings are OK, with 5% max (11.85 GB) is allowed. Normally I only look when I hit a serious problem and want to restore to a recent date, but now I'm feeling I need to check every day.

    I've done some research but so far found no relevant explanation. All suggestions would be much appreciated please.

    --------------------

    I added a fresh SR and was surprised to see (from Configure) that it was a mere 25 MB in size. Seems very small, considering my C: SSD is 256 GB and a Macrium image is 150 GB? What exactly is an SR saving?


    Win 10 Pro 1903 build 18362.476

    Disappearing Restore Points

    I have provided 59GB for the Restore Points.

    And I have created one Restore Point that used up less than 200MB of the space provided.

    Yet after a few days, it disappeared.

    This keeps happening many times because I created them just to check whether they disappear like the rest.

    They do.

    And just in case anyone is curious whether I have enabled System Protection, the answer is that I have.

    My understanding of how Restore Points work is that as more and more Restore Points are created and the spaced provided is squeezed, the older ones will be deleted to make space for the new ones.

    This is a very logical step.

    But as can be seen above I have 59GB while the Restore Points created came to less then 200MB!!!!

    I think that the whole argument is becoming more and more futile.

    By right Microsoft must do something to ensure that the Restore Points are not deleted in any way.

    But so far, they have either passed the bug back to the users by suggesting all sorts of programming by the user to solve the problem or better still staying invisible!!!

    Do you know what?

    Not everyone is a programmer and if you screw up, you don't even have the Restore Point to save you!

    Which is what the Restore Point is there in the first place!

    I hope that users will wake up to the fact the Microsoft is passing the bug back to THEM!!!!

    I suggest that users in the US awaken the top hierachy in Microsoft to the deplorable state of affairs in their company!!!

    Losing restore points


    Davidhk-All have disappeared.

    Word Man-I realize the restore point storage. I can create up to 6 restore points that will display. If I create anymore, then the oldest at the bottom of the list gets bumped off and the new one goes to the top of the list.
