There's an option/button on the dialog used to view restore points to "view more restore points". I've never clicked it, but I wonder if this might not show you all the restore points. I have a hard time believing that any of them would be deleted from the "database" of restore points.

These shouldn't get wiped after a reboot, they should stay there according to your space threshold.

Is it enabled? Is the usage set high enough?

Make sure it is enabled with enough space.

Also included an example of mine, I have had many reboots since these, and these were all created automagically.
