You could increase the amount of space system restore takes up, which would allow for more and older points to be kept. Not sure if you can save a specific point indefinitely though.

If you want to be certain to keep a restore point, you should do imaging to an external disk ( Imaging with free Macrium ). The imaging files you can manage yourself, but the restore points are managed by the system on a FiFo (first in-first out) basis. Even with a very large shadowstorage (that's where the restore points are being kept), it will eventually overwrite the oldest restore points.
