Vista Home defragmenting deletes restore points

  Steven15 10:02 26 Sep 2008


Using diskeeper I found it deleted all my restore points so I uninstaled and ran the vista defrag programme same problem.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

Have you changed your Shadow Copy Storage ?

If you have reduced this to such a small amount,SR will not retain all restore points,it is just not possible.

Just reading through Google,and a lot is said about Diskeeper deleting restore points,however there is no valid reason why this would happen (not that i could find).

I would suggest you change your shadow storage allocation and create a new restore point immediately-download a small legit program and install this,then reboot the computer and see if SR is working...maybe run DK and see if it still removes SR points.

Thanks Skidzy, done as you suggest I have 42gig allocated and 11 used mystery!

Solved by upgrading to diskeeper 2008 which can run in VSS mode as Skidsy suggested this is where the problem was.
