1. Go to "Control Panel\System and Security\System" and click the "System protection" link. You will see the "System Properties" screen open on the "System Protection" tab.

2. Select "OS (C:) (System)" and click "Configure..." button. You will see current restore settings on the drive C:.

3. Make sure "Turn on system protection" is checked.

4. Drag the "Max Usage" to about 22% of the disk space so that more restore points can be maintained.

5. Click "Apply" button to save changes.
