    Hello betaupsilon, :)

    Are you able to use any of the other options to delete restore points without the others getting deleted?

    I am revisiting this issue now. I will try CCleaner & report back.

    I am not sure what is occurring, but I seem to be losing RESTORE POINTS with or without System Restore Explorer. I am doing experiments to attempt to isolate the cause or at least reproduce the problem.

    Will report back.

    I think I found the problem, but I need a solution. To avoid placing files on the wrong partition during the installation process I hid the 2nd partition using "MINI PARTITION WIZARD". I then install the software on the partition of interest. After installation I UNHIDE the 2nd partition & REBOOT. I then discover that the RESTORE PTS on the 2nd partition have been wiped out.

    What can I do?

    betaupsilon,

    I'm not sure there's anything you can do about it unless you stop hiding and unhiding the partition like that.

    OK, I have a software package that wants to stash files onto another partition instead of the partition onto which the installation is designated. My solution was to hide the other partition, but I ran into the SYSTEM RESTORE problem.

    Maybe I should shrink the 2nd partition to force the software to place the files on the partition where the installation is specified. I'll try that & report back.

    It appears that this alternative approach worked. I do not quite understand why the RESTORE PTS get eliminated when HIDING & then UNHIDING the partition. When UNHIDING the partition along with the correct drive letter assignment should the SYSTEM VOLUME file have the correct RESTORE PTS?

    Great news, but I'm not sure why it happens either.

    It just occurred to me that manipulating any system partition with PARTITION WIZARD whether HIDING or changing the letter drive probably wipes out the SYSTEM RESTORE PTS. I will conduct an experiment & see if this is the case & report back.

    I imagine someone probably has encountered this problem & maybe has a solution. Anyone know about this?

    My experiment revealed that resizing or hiding the system partition will eliminate the RESTORE PTS. Changing the drive letter does not seem to delete these points.

    So the question is can the RESTORE PTS be protected whenever making partition changes with PARTITION WIZARD?
