The Restore Point calendar for Jan 2006 has no restore points.
It appears my computer has stopped making automatic restore points...how do I re-activate it???

Thanks,
Tennistm

Either you have disabled Restore points or somehow your storage limitations have been set to maintain files created at an earlier date, and therefore is not allowing your system to create new restore points due to a lack of space based on the settings of System restore, so try modifying those, and if that fails, try deleting some of the prior restore points if they are no longer necessary.

Let me know if this helps

Elaine,
I checked and my System Restore is enabled on automatic.

Baby Tech,
How do I do what you suggested...."lack of space based on the settings of System restore, so try modifying those, and if that fails, try deleting some of the prior restore points if they are no longer necessary."

Thanks,
Tennistm
