XP SP 3 Restore Points?

Has anybody had a look to check on their restore points since installing Sp 3?

I`ve just noticed that all of mine, for the past two months or so, automatic and Software Distribution, have gone.

There is one for to-day, but that`s it. Is it just me or is this an issue with SP 3?

Just looked at mine. Loads of restore points going back to mid July.

I have had SP3 installed since it was released.

Could it be that the installation of Sp 3 has wiped all the SP 2 restore points? I installed it only a few days ago,but didn`t anticipate that the SP 2 restore points might not be of any use.

It`s mentioned here but with reference to only one restore point being kept. I think I must have had about twenty of them, never having interfered with XP Sp 2`s allocation of space for them.

Does it have something to do with the release date? Is the latest version of XP SP 3 deliberately modified to clear out SP 2 restore points? Are the old restore points still valid (if you still have them), or a possible source of trouble if you try to use them?

Sp3 came through on an automatic update for me on Tuesday, installed it, no problem and all my restore points are sill there.
