If someone could help me figure this one out, I'd be most grateful. Every time I restart all of my restore points disappear. Seems like lots of people have this problem, but noone has the fix. Restore is turned on. There's lots of available space on both drives. It's not dual boot. It does create the restore points, but they don't survive the reboot. I have seen some that think the boot time defrag might be the culprit, but I can't find a way to stop it to make sure. Thanks in advance.
A little more info:
I'm not using Spybot.
MBAM, SAS, and Avira antivir all come up clean.

Okay, just a little more info. I checked the system error log, and it seems I have the dreaded, infamous, really tough to figure out or correct:The first:
Volsnap event id 25:

The shadow copies of volume C: were deleted because the shadow copy storage
could not grow in time. Consider reducing the IO load on the system or
choose a shadow copy storage volume that is not being shadow copied.

And the second:
Volsnap event id 27:

The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted during detection because a
critical control file could not be opened.

Any takers? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Did you check to see if you have enough disk space for the backups?

Hey Groovicus,
Yes, I have checked for space issues. Both HDD are set to use up to 50% for system protection, and both are well over 60% available. I know 50% sounds a little extreme, but I've tried everything else I know.
(except for reducing the IO load. Not really sure what that means. Google comes up with no helpful info, at least not for me.)

How do you know that you have 60% of the space set aside still available?

When I say 60% available, I mean that's what it says for available space for the whole hard drive, not for system protection allotment.

As stated by the OP, it is not a dual boot system.

Tried: right click system restore->properties->security->auth all options for "everyone"
Move slider all the way to the right (system protection)
No joy
Reset to previous settings
