Are you using a 3rd party tool for defragmenting? These can sometimes delete your restore points.
I was using PerfectDisk for a while and every time I ran it my restore points were wiped out.
No i don use any 3rd party tool for defragmentation.This problem started since 1week..

I have uploaded d screenshot.
1. You have no restore points.
2. Your shadowstorage is far too small. A single shadow (restore point) can be as big as 1GB. I suggest you allocate 5 to 10GBs.

The simplest method for changing restore point size is OPTION ONE in System Protection - Change Disk Space Usage

You can also use this command:

vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=C: /on=C: /maxsize=10%

The 10% you can of course change to a number of your liking. Instead of 10% you can also say 5GB or 10GB or whatever. just do not forget the 'GB' - else it will assume bytes which is useless.
