I tried to do a restore of my win 7 64-bit machine and found only three restore points. The oldest was 36 hours old. That struck me as dumb so I called our tech support. According to them, win 7 builds a restore point automatically after certain changes and only saves the most recent three restore points. That seems dumb to me, but it gets worse because every time forefront installs an updated signature list it makes a new restore point. Given that forefront updates at least once a day, you're never going to have a restore point more than a couple of days old.
I'm told that the only alternative is to disable automatic builds of restore points. The problem there is that also deletes any restore points you have. The choice seems to be having your oldest restore point be two days old, or having none at all. Not even ms would do something like that, would they? Does anyone have any work around, or are we just missing something down here?
