I have system protection for system settings and files set to 2gb on c: for c:
there are two triggers in the scheduled tasks, and both work (a restore point gets created when the conditions are met)
- when i install updates or uninstall a program
- when i start the machine
Also, when i manually run the task or the command line used by the tasks, a restore point is created.
BUT the restore points eventually get deleted. I had two of them earlier today, using less than 400mb, now I have none. they don't get deleted after a restart. i haven't been able to pinpoint when they get deleted, but they don't last more than a day or two. and they never get anywhere near the allowed 2gb, though they do get past the allocated 300mb
VSS service is set to manual start, which is the default.
system protection is ONLY on for drive C:. I tried to disable it for drive C:, restart the machine, then re-enable it. no go.
i ran a SFC, no errors.
I ran MSE, MBAM, Temp Folder Cleaner and Sophos anti-rootkit, nothing found.
I ran a registry clean and compact (eusing), no difference.
my system was upgrade from Vista, where system restore worked fine.
i don't know what else to do. I have a daily backups, but system restore is a lot more convenient. I would like to get it to run.
thank you in advance for any input
