    restore point question

    I want to restore the system to earlier state, but when I select restore point manually, it shows me just 3 restore points from yesterday, when I check show all restore points, nothing happen. How to find a restore points from 2 - 3 days ago ?

    When you start up system restore, you will see the option to show more restore points... check it, select the restore point you want

    You need to check the amount of space that you have set aside for restore points .. if your restore points exceed the amount of space you have reserved, windows will delete the oldest point available to make room for a new one.

    System Protection - Change Disk Space Usage

    Unfortunately, once they're gone, they're gone... You might want to increase your space for restore points, or if you have set up system restore to make automatic restore points, you may want to consider reducing the frequency of automatic restore points..

    Ah well, I found out how to check how much space was used by restore points, and it is only 10GB. So that doesn't fit.
