Windows 7: What could be chaning my System Restore Max Usage slider to 100%?

Windows 7 Home Premium x 64 SP1
What could be chaning my System Restore Max Usage slider to 100%?

*chaning = CHANGING

I have a small 80 GB SSD for "C" that runs the OS, and two other 1 TB drives "D:" and "R" that run programs and store data.

I turn on system restore for C and D. I set the Max Usage slider for C at 6% - 4.47 GB and it stays there for a few days. Since D runs many programs, I reserve about 3% on that drive for Sys Restore.

Later I see that my C drive is (red) critically low on space. Then I must reset the slider back to 6% from the new 100% setting (which it got magically changed to).

What could possibly be making this change for me without my doing it myself?

I'd LOVE to be able to fix this....



Win7x64, 12 GB RAM, Chrome broke so I moved to FireFox, many tabs open at once, Photoshop, Excel, Word, and others.
