System Restore points disappear

On Win 7 Pro, my System Restore points disappear, usually after a day or two. Any idea why?

This issue can be caused if the maximum storage size limit is set to low for your shadow storage.

System Restore points are deleted after you restart your Windows 7-based computer

If your hard drive fills up, they may get auto-deleted.

If this is some but not all System Restore points remember that when you fill up the space allotted to the Restore points, any new Restore point will delete the oldest point.

Sorry for the delay in responding ... the junk filter spammed the responses so I didn't see them ;)

I see that the max system protection space usage for c: was set very low. I've raised it and will see what happens.

you can test if it works by making several restore points :
