Default System Restore

I am having some problem with the System Restore function. When the system sets a restore point it wipes out the prevoius setting so at any time I only have one restore point.

Go to the restore point controls and check the size you have for the restore function. If it's not enough to build a library of points it will just create one at a time and over write the last one. If you have the room on your drive jack the slider to max.

You'd run out of disk space if you wanted a load of System Restore points :P You'd need Volume Shadow Copy in Windows Server 2003 and a backup hard drive to do that.

Yup. It could fill the hard drive in a matter of days.
