Files or folder with blue text instead of black text indicate that they are compressed.

If that is the case  why are they not compressing them, they used to, they are all blue (not grey) on the other PC, they were always blue, also I'm not getting system checkpoints like I used to

the amout of file space to use is set to maximum

Yes but it may solve the problem, if your system works in a proper way you can try it and make new restore points afterwards (also you can make a disk image with suitable software which will contain the old restore points).

1) Are the contents of the restore point folders blue or grey?
2) Is the option "Colored display of encrypted or NTFS compressed folders" enabled in the Folder Options?

If the subfolders/files are in blue then they are compressed and there is no difference if the main folders are grey or blue. Are you sure they were really blue? Anyway you have no real problem, you can just let the whole thing as it is now.
