I am getting ready to use Brink's tutorial on setting a scheduled System Restore point each day and I noted that he said that it was standard for Vista to make a Restore point each day at start up and one at midnight.
Last time I looked I did not have these in my list of points, so I checked to see if the startup and midnight points were indeed enabled to be created. They were.
But when I went to look at System Restore points available I had none of the startup or midnight points available.
Further checking showed that 2 days ago when I installed Nero 9, it made 40 restore points in the 17 minutes it took to install!
Why would it do that? Does it make any sense? I made one before I installed it, and okay, I could see it might make one itself before the install, but ... 40??!
So, am I correct in assuming that because of these 40 restore points the system is now not able to save the StartUp and Midnight points because I also manually have made one or two per day over the past few days, so it keeps the manual ones and the Nero ones and throws out the System-created ones because there is not enough room and they are the lower priority? Or what is going on here?
Thanks for shedding some light on this if you can.
p.s. I did not change my default system restore storage size or anything, it is set at default settings.
