Lost Restore Points.

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Hello:
Sorry for the double entry ( I hit the wrong key). - After installing the
latest eight updates (KB896358, 890046, 896422, 896428, 883939, 898458,
893066, 890830) all my system restore points were gone. Has anybody else had
this happening? What is the cause?
Thanks for your reply.

    Hi,

    Go to Start - Run and type eventvwr.msc and press enter.
    Click on System in the left pane.
    Click the gray title "Source" at the top of the source name column in
    the right pane to sort by source name, look for "sr" and "srservice".
    Double click on each of these events, then click on the button below
    the two arrows in the upper right corner. This will copy the event
    information to the clipboard. Paste the information for each of the
    two event here. This will help us in diagnosing the problem.

    Hi, Bert K.
    Thanks for your reply. However, I have cleared my event viewer b4 looking at
    the "Source" column and thereby lost the info. I have created a new restore
    point in case something goes wrong (again). MS update sometimes does quirky
    things and this latest one was one of them. Maybe MS didn't want me to go
    back to a previous date and cancelling the updates. Who knows??
    Thanks for taking the time to write.--

    Hi Rock:
    Thanks for the info but my disk space usage is set at 12% (8584 MB) or
    maximum. Besides, I had cleared previous restrore points to create more free
    space on my hard disk. Somehow one of the updates deleted my current system
    restore point. Maybe MS didn't want me to cancel the updates by going back to
    a previous date.... who knows??
    Thanks,
    Fwall4

    You're welcome. Something similar happened here a couple of weeks ago.
    Haven't figured out what caused that either.

    Hi,

    How much free disk space is there? Is System Restore monitoring drives
    other than the C:\ drive?
    A low disk space condition during the Windows Update may have caused
    the restore points to be removed. This is where the Event Viewer log
    may have come in handy.

    I installed the same updates and have retained all my restore points.

    Hi,

    See my reply above. It's not a good practice to clean the event
    viewer, particularly when updating and making changes to the system.

    Did you attach any external storage device with a little free space on it?
