How to increase max storage for RestorePoints? Unlimited keep days?


Extraordinary Member
How do I change the amout of storage reserved for SystemRestorePoints on partition D?

Is there a Registry entry for that?

As I found out the current number of days my RestorePoints are kept is 90 days.

How can I increase these number of days?
Is there a Registry entry for that?

If I change this number somehow to "0" does that mean unlimited?

I prefer to keep RestorePoints unlimited.
If there is not enough storage space for a new RestorePoint then the oldest should be removed.

How can I setup this "queue" RP strategy?

I just had this issue in Windows 8, I increased the amount of space available and it seems to be keeping my restore points now.
