I think they were deleted after running a disk cleanup or something, anyway they are deleted and I can't get them back. Anyone know how?

Sorry, but to the best of my knowledge, if they are gone, they are gone. However if your computer is running normally at the moment you can always create one :  'Start / Control panel / System / System protection (in the top left hand corner)' . Then choose 'Create restore point' from the dialogue box that appears.

It seems that the System Restore points are stored in the System Volume Information folder.


Interesting reading...   Restore points get stored in System Volume Information - Windows 7 Help Forums
