Unless you've changed your defaults, Restore Points should only be deleted
automatically if they've been sitting in the buffer for over 136 years, or
you don't have room for new ones.
You can check how much space is allocated to Restore Points and Shadow
Copies with the command:
(From an elevated CMD prompt
vssadmin list shadowcopies
The allocation should be less than 15% of the drive where your OS resides.
Each Restore Point uses about 300MB.
(Meaning 5 Restore Points should be about 1.5GB + File Shadow Copies)
That's nowhere near 15% of even the 50GB you have left.
