Hi

I don't seem to have any previous versions to restore my files from on my WinX desktop
I don't believe I have any permanent defrag options running

I checked the the requirements :

- System Properties / Configure / Turn on System Protection for the drive(s) that you want to have previous versions of it's files and folders available. =>set disk space usage to 20%
- Server - Service set as default of Started and Automatic.
- TCP/IP NetBios Helper - Service set as default of Started and Automatic.
- Volume Shadow Copy - Service set as default of Manual.
- Workstation - Service set as default of Started and Automatic.

Does this correctly sum up the requirements ?

I ran "vssadmin list shadowstorage" and it indicated that my 2% was already used up so I guess I have my answer, right ?

How often does Windows execute an 'image' save ?

thanks
yann

 "Volume Shadow Copy - Service set as default of Manual"
If that means it is not turned on (setting =Automatic),  It seems you are not saving any files.
