RESTORE POINTS NOT THERE !

I tried to restore my laptop to a previous state but found that i only have restore points for one month.......... i have had this laptop for 1 year and all i can see is April restore points...... where are the others and yes i have checked the "show more restore points" but it only gives me 4 restore points all dated April.
Any ideas please?
thanks

Hi Tugela

It all depends on how much space you have allocated to system restore. I have allocated 5gig and I too only have restore points going back to the beginning of April. It can also depend on how much uninstalling/installing you do and what programs you use as some make restore points of there own (ie revo uninstaller,windows update) As new restore points are created the older ones are deleted to free up space.
Have a look here System Protection - Change Disk Space Usage
