System Restore will not hold

Win XP - Even though I have the "System Restore" option turned on, the files are never retained more than a day on the calendar. In other words, I can see all the of the restore points for today but upon attempting tomorrow, the restore points from today will be gone.

Are you low on disk space? Maybe the system is dumping the restore images because of that.
