    Hello @eliuri,

    The exact steps in the tutorial still work for me using an administrator account at step 11.
    I have schedule set to create daily. However, when it creates new point the previous one is deleted so I only have the last created restore point available! Why would this be as I have copied exactly the instructions.

    Hello John, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Double check to see what your max storage size is set for the drive for restore points to see if it may need to be increased to allow more restore points to be kept.

    Thanks for suggestion but already have allocated storage at 3% (about 2GB - probably too much but have plenty of capacity). Yesterday I run the task on demand at regular intervals and all restore points created and available. This morning all restore points have gone! I did note that there was an update to Win10 late yesterday and I have read somewhere that certain updates can delete all restore points. Do you know if this is correct? If so can it be overcome as seem odd that Win10 would do an update and if anything goes wrong the only solution is a complete reinstall of Windows!

    Correct. It's not uncommon for some updates (ex: new builds) to wipe previous restore points.

    There's something a bit unpredictable--or fluky- with system restore in Windows 10.

    I got that same Windows Update on Tuesdsay and it did not delete my restore points. Neither did it create a RP prior to the update, as it should have

    My restore points do get deleted even though I have it set to 20% of the space!

    Seems to happen with RPs older than 14 days, or after ~18 RP's and when I'm very much below the max space allowed. EventViewer shows no "volsnap" episodes for those deletions. Nor can I find other entries for this. Fortunately, I cant remember using SR to go back further than that. Nonetheless it does seem show that Windows is deleting RPs well before max space or 90 days is reached
