    System Restore Problem - Restore Points are not remaing "saved"

    Hi folks,
    I can create a restore point, it completes, and in the same window, I can click on System Restore, it opens and "shows" the restore point I just made.
    I close the window, and can do any task as open Mail, open browser, open a program, and then I return to System Restore and it opens, but says there are no restore points saved.
    I have done:
    Chkdsk / r - made sure VSS and Backup is started and running - Looked and made sure page file is set - made sure the System Restore has an adequate amount set for restore points in mb -
    I have also turned off System Restore, rebooted, turned System Restore back on, rebooted, but that didn't help.

    I'm just lost for what to try next. Your help and thoughts are highly appreciated.

    Have a blessed day.

    Tom

    Do you have enough free space?

    Have you reduced the size available to System Restore?

    Hi Joe,
    Yes. I have a 600 gb Raptor - I have 161 gb available - System Restore is set to 100 gb.
    I have also ran SFC and found no problems.
    Thanks so much,
    Tom
