System restore points missing
I would like to do a system restore, but when I try to do so (system protection/system restore), it tells me that "no restore points have been created on your hard drive".
2 weeks ago I successfully did a system restore, and I have not changed any settings since then. My recovery partition is still in place, the disk manager says the recovery drive has 8 GB out of 15 GB free. Could the restore point be in my recovery partition, but for some reason Windows isn't seeing it? How would I view the recovery partition to check?

I'm not an authority, but that would indicate you have no restore points.
Don't know why.
I use it once or twice a month and it works for me at least 95% of the time.
There are threads on this forum about it failing to work properly, but I have not paid a lot of attention to them as it works OK for me. Drill down with the search tool and/or wait for more comments.
Have you recently used any disk tools on your drive---such as defragmenting, changing partitions, etc? Or made any system changes you can recall?
Can you manually make a restore point right now and confirm it with that vssadmin command?
