It would help to see a screenshot of the System Properties, System Protection tab...
Prior to this incident were there any new hard drives or SSDs installed or changed or anything to do with the system storage and f so describe those details.
I'll see if I can explain it...
That problem is usually caused when an invalid drive is selected to be monitored by System Restore.
Since Windows is usually installed on the C drive you would usually only have the C drive being monitored for System Restore but sometimes there might be two C drives that show up and the wrong one is selected.
Here is an example of a system where (for some reason) there are two C drives available and the wrong one is checked:
You can look at that and tell the drive with the check mark is the wrong one because it does not have the Windows logo next to it or it may say "Missing" or something else that is not right.
You need to turn off System Protection uncheck/stop monitoring that afflicted drive and change things so the drive WITH the Windows logo is checked and being monitored like this example:
It may take some fiddling but I think that's the problem.
Fixing that may relieve the system of the deleted restore points issue but just fix one things at a time...
