    System Restore Point.

    System Restore lists a number of restore points. When I select any of the listed restore points, the only one that System Restore can find is the latest one. All others result in a message saying the restore point can't be found.

    First: Why are more than one point listed, if they can't be used?
    Second: How do I make room for more than one restore point that can be used?

    Hi pjgen,
    System Restore is not a dependable program. Look in 'Security and Backups' forum for an alternative.

    Thank you for your reply. However, looking in "Security and Backups' forum, I didn't find any alternatives for "System Restore", only alternatives for disk imaging software. I use "disk imaging" where appropriate, and was looking for "system imaging" capability.

    Have you reduced the amount of disk space that can be used for restore points?
