restoration problem


How often are restore points created?
Restore points are created automatically every day, and just before significant system events, such as the installation of a program or device driver. You can also create a restore point manually.

How much hard disk space does System Restore require?
To store restore points, you need at least 300 megabytes (MB) of free space on each hard disk that has System Protection turned on. System Restore might use up to 15 percent of the space on each disk. As the amount of space fills up with restore points, System Restore will delete older restore points to make room for new ones.

How long are restore points saved?
Restore points are saved until the hard disk space System Restore reserves is filled up. As new restore points are created, old ones are deleted. If you turn off System Protection (the feature that creates restore points) on a disk, all restore points are deleted from that disk. When you turn System Protection back on, new restore points are created.

The restore point is a built in utility by microsoft, you can't have the option to configure the settings!!!

Open your system properties. Check to make sure the system restore feature is enabled. I had to do this on my old computer as you have to tell the restore feature how much hdd space to dedicate to restore functions. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
