I just opened up System Restore and all my restore points from before a backup today were gone. I know they were being saved properly as I just checked them a few days ago and there were quite a few. I appear to be able to create and save new points (there is one from earlier today), but I really want to know what happened to delete all my old ones. Could it be malware? When my allocated space for system restore is full, it just overwrites the oldest points rather than starting over, right?
Also, a related question for once they're working, is there any way to change the frequency of saving System Restore points and what triggers their creation? So many are being created by installing stuff/daily backups that my oldest ones when I checked before were less than a week old; I'd like to be able to go back a bit farther. Can the task scheduler control this?
