Restore points

Windows XP Home,Sp2. How many Restore Points does Win XP keep?
Or does it auto delete old Points after a certain time?

To a certain extent it's up to you and the size of your HDD.

Click on Start; right click on My Computer and left click on Properties.

Choose the System Restore tab.

You will see a slider to set the amount of disk space to allocate to System Restore.

Mine is at the maximum 12%.

The 12 per cent System Restore figure is the default and was conceived at a time when hard drives' capacity was very much less than today's three-figure GBs drives (XP has been around at least four years now).

Currently I've configured the setting at five per cent on my 60GB drive, which provides 2280MB for SR use.

When you bring up the System Restore panel, you should then click on the Settings button to bring up the slider if you wish to alter the per cent figure.
