Windows 7: System Restore not saving automatic points

System Restore not saving automatic points

Can't believe that a program that was released over 4 years ago has still got so many things wrong with it. If I can make a manual restore point and windows updates create a restore point then why oh why is it so hard for an automatic restore point to be created. Never had this problem with XP but then again XP worked. If I have a restore point scheduled and the history says the task was started and completed then why is it not being saved? And yes, I have tried all the fixes (been working on this for two weeks) Don't want to hear that windows 7 only creates a point after 7 days if no other points have been created. If that's true then the idiot that came up with that one should be standing in the unemployment line.

I can't believe that after 206 views no one has an answer for this. What's a matter Microsoft is this one of those little glitches that you hope people will overlook and will fix itself over time or is it you just don't care you have a faulty program?

I saw your post soon after you made it. I spent some time looking into it, but I don't have a solution for you.

I'm just another W7 user attempting to help those that I can.

Maybe other forum members (other Windows 7 users) can help you.

System Restore isn't creating (or saving?) restore points properly
For some reason my System Restore function isn't automatically creating (or isn't showing) System Restore points as it should be doing for "major" system events (e.g., isn't automatically creating restore points before/after Windows Updates and software/driver updates). I'm not sure if it isn't...

Allocated System Restore space holds far fewer restore points now
I have 8gb of space allocated to System Restore, all monitoring my C partition only. This space is always at least 85-90% used according to the System Protection screen. In the past I have had at least 15 restore points to choose from after ticking "show more restore points." But today I went to...

Are restore points not automatic anymore?
My system crashed this a.m. after a MS update installation. When I checked for a restore point, I had NONE. Even though Win7 has told me it was creating one after updates before. Fortunately, I was able to uninstall the update and get past the black screen which told me it couldn't reach Event...
