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.
