  1. Windows 10 keeps deleting all restore points


    I noticed it when my laptop failed to start windows so I tried to restore it to an earlier point but to my surprise there was none even tho I created it manual and there were automatic restore points because system protection is turned on.

    So i was forced to do a clean restart and now I check from time to time to see if my restore points are there and they always end up being deleted which is not good because if there is another error I can't easily restore it.

    Last time I increased disk usage for system protection from 3%(8.92gb) to 10%(29.74gb) even tho 3% was probably enough. Still ended up being deleted.

    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 (CWindows 10 keeps deleting all restore points :) Properties
    Disable System Protection (OFF and ON) in System Protection for OS (CWindows 10 keeps deleting all 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.

  3. Windows 10 system image restore points unable to delete

    Have deleted system image backups using the windows 10 suggested method. But 2 system image rstore points are still listed under other backups. Have tried all the suggested methods on the net and from the microsoft community, but the system image restore
    points remain. Even after deleting all but the last normal restore points. I guess I can just ignore them. Would appreciate any advice as nothing seems to remove them.

    Delete System Restore Points in Windows 10


    Hi Brink,

    I thought perhaps it might have something to do with Windows Backup but have always had the Manage Windows Backup disk space option set to: Keep only the recent system image.

    I deleted all the restore points for D: (backup drive) thru System Protection. Don't believe System Restore has ever been on for D: drive. Even tho doing this indicates the Restore points have been successfully deleted the 3.52 GB value always remains.

    I had to go thru a few gyrations this morning to clear the normal Restore Points I found another poster suggesting almost identical problem = System restore - weird behavior. Thought may be symptom of a larger issue.

    Thank you for your assistance once again.
