I only moved onto Windows 7 a few weeks ago and have created Acronis Images at every juncture. Yesterday I thought to start using System Restore before installing some older programmes and was surprised to find that a dialogue box came up stating that no Restore Points had been made. Does Win 7 not create them automatically?
Do you have a dual-booting system with XP & Win7 by any chance? If yes, XP may be deleting restore points in Win7. For a possible fix click here or click here (latter mentions Vista, but will also work with Win7). G
Crossbow7 Yes, System Restore is enabled for 'C' and disabled for all other drives/partitions. It was one of the first things that I did when acquiring Win 7 to ensure that only 'C' was enabled and nothing else. I do not have dual-booting. I assumed at the outset that Win 7 would create Restore Points as XP did.
Crossbow7 Created the first Restore Point yesterday and today installed another programme but did not manually create a restore point before that installation. Going into System Restore NOW - yesterdays Restore Point is displayed as well as a restore point for todays installation (which I did not create). It is as if System Restore only came into being yesterday.
