    Why only one system restore point


    Running Win 10 Home on a Dell desktop. Recently I wanted to revert back to an earlier created restore point and to my surprise there was only one restore point shown and it was the previous day - for some reason earlier created restore points were not saved? I know I created a few and some of my applications also created a couple. Wondering why this is occurring and how to configure System Properties to enable multiple restore points. Trying to show how my System Restore is configured in System Properties

    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 (CWhy only one system restore point :) Properties
    Disable System Protection (OFF and ON) in System Protection for OS (CWhy only one system restore point :)
    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.

    Scheduling System Restore Point Creation


    I have tried to precisely follow the instructions set out in System Restore Point : Create at System Startup - Windows 7 Help Forums, but the Task Scheduler / script is failing to create a restore point:
    • Running the script manually creates a Restore Point.
    • Task Scheduler appears to run the script, but no Restore Point results.

    (The Last Run Result code 0x41301 indicates "The task is already running".)

    The Task Scheduler settings are as follows:

    I would be grateful for any suggestions as to why the restore points are not being created.

    Why only one system restore point

    System restore point automatic create not working....need help.

    Were you seeing CAPI2 errors with Macrium & System Restore.

    And after enabling system protection.
    1) Does System Protection automatically create and populate checkpoints to list.
    Does System Protection create restore points when called by a program and populate checkpoints to list.

    2) I'd like to confirm whether my issue is unique to me or common.
    My issue is that I can manually create restore points okay and those manual created will populate to my list.
    Automatic restore points do not populate to my list. Albeit, Task Scheduler shows Last Run time change.
    Automatic restore points do not populate to my list e.g., with Windows Updates.
    When create restore point is called by a program. I see activity that suggest restore point is being created ...but, again the activity does not translate to an entry in my list.
