I'm new to this forum because my father asked that I "Fix" the computer. I feel there is nothing wrong, and he claims that we always used to be able to restore past one month on our computer. After doing one search i found that it is based on % of memory allowed to remember restore points. Could it have changed our restore point limit with the addition of more programs on our computers. (Half life 2, Battle Field Vietnam,ect.)

Yes..the space system restore uses depends on the percentage of the total hard drive space you allocate. So for example if you have a 100 gig hard drive and allocate 12%, then there will be 12 gb of space used for system restore.

If you fill up the drive, though, so that there is less than 12 gb available, then system restore will obviously not be able to use as much space.
