  1. Found the problem - it was caused by a file "shredder" - eraser.exe - although not it's fault. There are a few of these now - designed to obliterate confidential files that have been deleted but are often left intact on the drive but no longer in the file system. I had not used it much and set it to erase all "empty" space on the drive rather than individual files.

     

    The program works not by erasing the data but by actually writing something over the unused space. So it keeps writing until it fills the drive - at which pooint windows says it is short of disc space and deletes the "non-essential" restore points.

     

    My apologies to MrG for suggesting that his program is anything less than perfect.

  2. I have discovered recently that my restore points are disappearing on a regular basis.

     

    Question is does CC clear restore points - as a log file - I would have thought that restore points needed a separate category.

     

    Anyone know how CC treats Windows restore point files ?
