Windows 8 restore points are being deleted automatically

 I have upgraded to Windows 8 from  Windows 7 and is not using the dual boot.

After a bitter experience of system crash, I reinstalled Windows 7 and then upgrading to windows 8 and then I created the restore points.

(I had to opt to upgrade (not clean installation, because my machine manufacturer M/s Sony corporation support only upgrade not clean installation due to the unavailability of drivers).


However in due course of time, I found that my restore points are automatically getting deleted. I searched the Microsoft forum and it gave that issue is related to dual boot, but after upgrading, there is single OS i.e. Windows 8 on my machine.


Please assist me how can I get rid of this problem so that restore points created  by me in windows 8 are not deleted automatically.


With kind regards-

Might look at     Control Panel  / System  / System Protection / Configure

There is a slider there for percentage of hard drive space to use for the restore points.  Once you exceed the percentage of storage space allowed, it starts dropping off restore points of course.
