    Restore points; what the hell is W10 doing?

    What the hell is W10 doing?
    Yesterday I still had several restore points.
    Today, I have only one, which is a new one called Scheduled Checkpoint. My own restore points were removed and the Disk Space Usage was diminished.
    In the meantime, no (Windows) updates took place (last one still at March 23), and no further actions from my side could explain this.
    Therefore: What the hell is W10 doing?

    Same here. Funny thing for me is, I was on my way in there to delete them anyway. I don't like or use restore points as they screw things up more than help for me. Rather, I use Macrium Reflect and make full system images once a week or as needed if I do anything that changes any files. Works for me.
    Still, this is very curious.

I find that the oldest restore points regularly disappear even though I have system recovery on and more than adequate disc space allocated. Am I missing something?

Restore points in W10
I like to have some kind of safety net - a reinstall is always possible but dull. Restore points are one option but I like to have several options since we know that restore points are very volatile. For the purpose I tried AOMEI OneKey which...
