Hi Expert
Windows system has a System Restore function. But when I wanted to use it to restore back to some time point, I just found two time points to do that, and I did not find the the time points that I used before these two time points. How can find the past time points ? It disappeared ? Anyone can give me some suggestion ? Thank you.

Do you have 'show more restore points' checked? If so, you have only the last two restore points saved. As new ones are created, the old ones are removed. To keep more restore points increase the space allocated to restore points on your hard disk.

Thank you for your fast reply. You are right. After I checked it, it showed a little more.

How much space does each time point need ? How can my PC have more time points saved? Can I have the time point saved automatically every certain time ?

Restore Points can only be saved for the space allocated. Old ones drop off then end. You can assign more space in Advanced System Settings (Control Panel). Go to the System Protection tab and click on Configure.  You will have to restart after changing this.

It's [system restore point] much easier to do it manually as it takes only a few minutes (and you are sure it is made).

Each restore point size can very depending upon what is actually installed on your computer. Normally restore points are created when you install software that changes a lot of configuration settings in the computer. Restoring your computer to a specific point will not only remove the software that created the restore point, and it will also undo any settings in the windows operating system created by installing the software. So the size of the restore point will very in size, depending upon how large the software is and how many changes were made.
