Windows 7: Increasing System Restore date range

Increasing System Restore date range

Hi guys. I am new to Win 7. I notice that when I run system restore the furthest back I can go is about 2 weeks. In XP when I run restore it pops up a calendar and allows me to go back several months.
Is there any way to configure Win 7 to restore back 2 months?

It soley depends on the amount of Diskspace you allow system restore to use

Go to start, right click on Computer, go to properties/System protection/configure
and set what you think you can afford (IIRC standard setting is depending on partition size 10-15%. I set it to 20% for now)

Increasing the system volume.
I bought a new Philips SHP 2000. Decent headphone but no option to control the volume. Anyway, while watching movies I can use VLC or MPCStar to increase the volume beyond 100%.
