The size of my PCHealth folder is just under 70mb. But what does this
tell me? I'm still rather confused as to why I only ever have one
restore point available :confused:

I don't know why you only have one checkpoint, but by establishing the
space allocated to system restore, and the size of the PCHealth
folders, we are able to try and correlate the data. I have twice as
much space allocated to SR, with a little over one-third the size of
PCHealth folder. In theory, if my thinking was correct, you'd have
about 11 checkpoints (67/6). Obviously there is more going on. If you
export your registry with ERUNT, what size folder do you get? Mine is
34MB. I'm just wondering if you tend to install and remove lots of
apps, and your registry has become bloated?
