System Restore not saving?
I have an HP 4740s i5 running Windows 7 Professional.
Some weeks ago I did a manual system restore as I like to do before I install a new programme. A couple of weeks later I did another but noticed there wasn't any previously recorder restore points [old age I thought] Any way I created another. Then last week I looked again was told there were no restore points again, after looking around I found they were switched off which surprised me because I was told they had been successfully created. So checked all the relevant boxes and made sure the drive protection was on.
Last week I created another one and again was told it has successfully completed but this morning when checking it tells one has never been created? The storage space says 3% used which for 1 restore I guess is could be right.
It seems to me that they are either being deleted after a day or so or they are simply not visible to me otherwise why does it tell me they have been successfully created?
Can ideas what is wrong.
I am not running anything different to my last PC and never had this problem with the Home Porofessional edition.

hey mayfly, If you have that much extra space, you can free up at least 5gb of space just so you can restore your computer. You have tons of rooms. I have a 1TB secondary drive that was my main drive for a while. I had like 15-20GB set for the backup so i could go back for a long time. But 204 MB is nothing. Change it up to higher volume and see if it does the trick. If it doesn't work you can always put it right back.
