Restore function in CCleaner Posted May 24, 2010 Bert18, Are you using Windows XP ? Then you can use a special explorer called ""EXplorerXP"" to see whether those System Restore Points (SRP) are really gone. Go in ExplorerXP to the folder ""System Volume Information"". If ExplorerXP tells you that that folder is larger than, say 20 Mb in size then one or more SRPs are still there. (Warning: ExplorerXP is not easy to use.) Did you use the ""Wipe Free Space"" option in CC ? Then you can kiss your SRPs goodbye. The only remedy is: 1. Don't use ""Wipe Free Space"" any more. At least, not for the drive(s) for which you have activated Windows System Restore. 2. Make sure you don't fill all the space on a drive. Because every time you do that, Windows (NOT CC) WILL delete one or more SRPs on that drive AGAIN, in order to make more diskspace available. If you have enough free diskspace and the SRP function enabled then, as time goes by, Windows will automatically create one or more new SRPs.
