Windows 10: Losing restore points

    Losing restore points


    I keep creating restore points everytime I change something on my Tablet. A week later, the restore point is gone. Could there be anything that could remove it as malware or something? I have Panda Antivirus, Malware Anti Malware Bytes, Super Anti Spyware and Ccleaner. Could anyone of these be removing my restore points?

    I'd like to make sure I understand correctly.
    If you kept creating restore points, you would have a list of them.
    You said "A week later, the restore point is gone". Which one is gone ? The oldest one or All restore points are gone ?

    Have you already ruled out that you are losing restore points because each new one would exceed the limit you've allocated for restore point storage? See Step 8 in Option 1 here: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3...dows-10-a.html

    Davidhk-All have disappeared.

    Word Man-I realize the restore point storage. I can create up to 6 restore points that will display. If I create anymore, then the oldest at the bottom of the list gets bumped off and the new one goes to the top of the list.

    Sorry to hear that, if ALL are disappearing, then it wouldn't seem to be related to space allocated. All I can think of ATM to be sure it isn't space allocation is to, say, triple the space allocation (at least temporarily) and confrm that the behavior persists.

    Lets try it this way.

    April 1-I create a restore point.
    April 2-A restore point is created automatically
    April 5-I create a restore point
    April 10-All restore point disappeared.

    Restore points are volatile and can disappear for a number of reasons. It is safer to work with images.
