Solution: When CCleaner doesn't show System Restore Points (Windows)

 

Info:
When trying to manage System Restore Points via CCleaner in 'Tools > System Restore' you may run into the issue where Restore Points aren't shown, even though when you look in Windows built-in System Restore tool it will show them.

 

Why does this happen:
* This can occur when there's corruption in the System Volume Information ("Restore Point").
* In Windows 10 System Restore may not be enabled. See the second post in this topic.
 
How to fix:
1. Turn off System Restore. This removes all restore points, including any which may be corrupted.
2. Turn on System Restore.

Another reason why CCleaner may not show restore points:
In Windows 10 System Restore may have never been turned on (enabled).

To learn how to turn on (enable) System Restore in Windows 10 view these instructions:

Important: Also make sure you've made a System Image Backup (works with Windows 7, 8, 10):
