Can anyone help?
When I create a system restore point everything is o-k except that the restore point vanishes after one month what is the problem ?
My son can go back 3&4 months to a restore point.

You probably need to increase the sixe of the data store click here

Right click My Computer, Properties, System Restore tab, Settings button.

Do you really need it to go back more than 1 month ??? Think about it !

May sound silly, but are your Windows date and time settings correct?

Re the System Restore default percentage setting of 12 per cent.

This was established when XP was released and hard drives had very much less storage capacities than today's three-figure drives.

I have a 60GB drive and System Restore is set at around five or six per cent, which is more than ample for the purpose.

Larger drives could well be used with a smaller percentage.

If you've increased the size of the store you will need to wait as more restore points are added.
