    Date of initial issues:
    Steps taken to resolve, but unsuccessful?:
    Operating System:
    Windows XP
    List current issues or symptoms:
    spontaneous deletion of System Restore points
    OS Architecture:
    I have been accustomed to looking in CCleaner and seeing months of old System restore points. I was therefore shocked earlier in the week to see only three. Then a couple of days later I checked, and those three were gone, and I had none at all.

    I have not defragged lately. I don't have Windows set to be doing this kind of thing with the points. What could be causing these points to disappear spontaneously? In the past they generally stayed until I deleted them manually.
