DISAPPEARING RESTORE POINTS (WINDOWS 7 & WINDOWS 10)

Postby tiffy » Thu Jun 16, 2016 9:48 am

YOU CAN DO TWO THINGS AS PREVENTATIVE ACTION:

(1) Make sure 'System Restore' (SR) have all the authority it needs: system restore icon right click, properties click to security tab and put checks in all authority columns.

(2) Give ‘System restore’ (SR) all the space it needs: within the 'Search programs and Files' of the START menu type 'create restore point', click on link found for 'create restore point', Custom, move slider ALL the WAY to right (max). Click Apply, & Reboot. Go back to 'create restore point' and create one and reboot. Look to see if restore point is indeed there. Mine was, hope yours is.

(The above procedure is slightly different for Windows 10 to access the adjustments but the basics stay the same: In “Search Windows” space type “Restore” and on the pop-up menu Click on “Create a Restore Point”. On the “System Properties” Menu Click on “System Protection” Tab. On “System Protection” Tab, Click on the “Configure” Button and do the Adjustmenst from there. Ensure the “System Protection” is ON & move the Slider ALL the way to the Right for “Max Usage”. Then create a Restore Point and reboot and ensure that the Restore Point is indeed created as explained in above procedure for Windows 7).

Note: this is clearly a Windows problem. You should NOT have to specify all your available free space to this component or change it's Authority. Both will surely come back and haunt you.

Even if Windows 7 & 10 currently shows that you have ‘Restore Points’ (RS) created (prior to the above adjustments), the day that you need those ‘Restore Points’ there will be none. However, what I did find is that some (not all) ‘restore points’ may still be available to you if you start-up Windows 7 or 10 in ‘safe Mode’ and access the 'Restore Points’ from there.

If you do not take the above mentioned precaution now, you may very well regret it later on.
There is no glory in practice but there is no glory without practice.
