Why do my vista restore points vanish?

April 16, 2011 at 17:51:05
Specs: Windows Vista, 3Gb RAM 250 Gb HDD
Can anyone advise why, even though my services are correctly set, my restore points keep disappearing?

I have not deleted them myself using cleanmgr.exe, I have had no virus or malware infections, no blue screens of death nor anything else untoward.

I realise Windows System Restore is a very poor piece of programming, but I have tried Acronis, Macrium and Paragon and each of them fails every time to make an image of the Windows partition, reporting an inability to read from the disk.

I use Vista HP SP2 and have all updates installed. However, I am left without ANY MEANS to protect my programs and data

Until you get this sorted install ERUNT (freebie). This at least allows you to save and restore registries, which seem to be the reason for most problems.

Please come back and let us know how you got on.
