System restore requires some idle time to create a restore point. How much hard drive space it is set to use? How much hard drive space is free?
Acer F1, Pentium 4, 2.8 ghz
Windows XP Home Edition SP2
512 mb memory
Intel V92 External Modem
Dial-up internet connection
Zone Alarm Firewall with Antivirus
I have noticed over the last fortnight or so that system restore is setting hardly any restore points. The only restore point set in February was when I downloaded and installed the latest Microsoft updates but the rest of the month is blank. I can create a restore point with no problems but shouldn't XP be creating restore points on a regular basis as a matter of course? I use my machine at least once a day and connect to the internet daily and my system restore settings are as recommended by XP.
Any advice would be welcome.
