Can I increase my system restore length for points

  erkmatrix 15:33 18 Feb 2010

Hi I'm currently setting up my PC and just gone into system restore and noticed it only has points from yesterday even though I started on Monday with the installation of programs. Why is this, is there a way to increase the size of my system restore somehow, in windows XP it used to have a calender and record lots to go back to if you had to.

Cheers John

I found it in that thread and have now set it to 15%, I might look into acronis though soon to do this as its will hopefully be better and more reliable.
