(You don't need them both, just choose one or the other).

If your system is currently error-free, why do you want to recover old restore points? Simply create a new restore point manually, then move on.

then don't check the box related to restore points if running disk cleanup.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Use the Windows backup program to save a good image off to some media.

Hang up and live.

I have never seen Disk Clean Up in Windows 7 (or XP) to have the ability to delete restore points. Ever. I just double checked and there is no check box for you to accidentally delete your restore points. I use Disk Clean up regularly and have never seen this option or any warning about it.
Are you sure you did not use another product that might have done this?
Are you sure you did not manually delete restore points?
Can anyone else confirm that Disk Clean Up does this????
I still doubt that it does this, but now I am beginning to worry.
As above, manually set a restore point and if at all possible make a disk image from Windows Back Up to another drive, it is a really good option to have (complete restore of entire drive to a specific time) and a normal back regularly updated up to protect your personal files.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

"I have never seen Disk Clean Up in Windows 7 (or XP) to have the ability to delete restore points. Ever."

If you run Disk Cleanup in Windows 7 and then select Clean System Files option and go to Advanced tab you can delete all restore points except the latest one.

I see now. The OP would have had to select disk clean up, then clean system files, then the more options tab, and then deliberately select the option to delete the restore points and shadow copies. That would have required very deliberate action on his part. Furthermore it still preserved the latest restore point if that is what was done. No problem that I can see unless there was an underlying problem that should have been dealt with first. A new restore point will be created once a week and at every update and install.
