That happens when there aren't very many to choose from.
How large is your hard drive? Reason I ask... 15% of it is reserved
for restore points. If you have a relatively small drive (by today's
standards), you will have fewer restore points.
Note also: restore points in Vista are HUGE compared to those in XP.
15% of your drive would probably hold 3 or more months of restore
points (with some days having several restore points) in XP. With a
100gig drive, you'd be lucky to hold 20 restore points in total.
