Depending on what OS you're using, but generally, you find them under System tools. For XP OS, go to "accessories to system


tools.

System restore points are stored in a hidden folder called System Volume Information on the root OS drive. CCleaner will not

affect them.


You cannot do anything to the file unless you boot from something else like an installer disk as it is protected, but you can

see it if you set your folder view to include hidden and system files. HERE is how to do that in Windows 8.

There could be other reasons for the disappearance like disc cleanup, automatic updates or setting your automatic restore

to off, but if you’re using windows 7, I suggest you try this link http://www.thewindowsclub.com/how-to-defrag-mft-page-

file-registry-system-files-in-windows-7 got from this link http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3237607/system-

restore-points-lost.html from where you can get other bits of advice. Cheers.

Hello, dear DancingAccountant,


You have several options for finding your restore points, but first you have to ensure that System Restore is functioning properly.


1.) Press the Windows Key + R ( Run command ) and type in : services.msc

2.) Make sure that the service called Volume Shadow Copy is switched to Automatic, and then press OK



3.) Right click "This PC", or "Computer", or "My computer", however it's named. Then click "Advanced System Settings", and look for a tab called System Protection



Then you should see your partitions listed there, and Protection can say Yes or No. I have disabled System Protection, so you will not see it. But if you look above, at the answer that has been provided by AAA1992 you will see that he has there all of his partitions being listed.

3.1.)If you want to backup your WINDOWS system ( System Restore, right? Crucial System Files, etc. ) then you will simply select the C: drive, click COnfigure, and see how much you want to allocate for your backup. The more you allocate, the larger the amount of files that Windows will save for later on, in case you are in trouble.

If there is no existing Restore Point you can simply use the Create button(In my case it is grayed out, I have totally disabled this feature on my computer - I don't use it ).

After you have chosen the size of the System Restore Point in step 3.1.) above, then you can just click Create, and Voila! You have a restore point that you can use later on when in trouble.

4.) How can you restore?

Many ways:

4.1.) You can either restore from this menu above, by clicking System Restore ( greyed out in my case, top of the window ), or if you have trouble booting up you can simply press shift F8 and the boot menu will appear.

Please check the article below.

Other restore point could come from different programs being used ie: Wise Registry, Glary Utilities. These are saved within the programs themselves.

@DancingAccountant
Just go to conntrol panel, type restore in the search field on the top right corner. You will see a list of options, select 'Backup and Restore'. then continue to select 'another backup to restore fiiles from'. That is where youcan see restore points.
