Nope, no defragging. I have NIS 2012 but "Insight Optimizer" (which calls Windows Defrag) is disabled

I have no idea where your missing restore points have gone, but here's how I manage mine.
Yep, I had already checked that, which is where I initially saw that the sapce used had decreased.

Then defrag. If video files are under one of the folders that restore backs up, you can get some really large restore points. If the disk space usage setting is conservative then the system may delete them to make room for the new one.
No new large files, as far as I can see. Where do I see if "old versions" is enabled and turn it off? Similarly for "conservative" disk space usage?
