Windows 7: System Restore only shows an Image Restore Point

System Restore only shows an Image Restore Point

I want to restore my system to yesterday but the only restore point shown is 6-month old system image restore point. Are there any hidden restore points? And, how can I access them?

Generally system restore will show all the available restore points.
This kind of thing can usually be explained away by the use of a system optimizing or cleaner type program wiping system restore points as they are created. Generally you should have one for every windows update you've applied at the very least.
If they are not there system restore has been disabled on your system. Or something, or someone has been removing them.

Hello iris2011, welcome to Seven Forums!



There's not much you can do if there are no System Restore points listed, you may have some success with the "Last Known Good ..." option in this tutorial at the link below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

This one shows how to have System Restore points created automatically, I prefer Method Two myself, it's not much help with what you need right now but may be useful in future.
