Free disk space by deleting System Restore Points
Windows XP system restore is a great feature to get your system back on track after you have made some changes and the changes have caused some problem in your system. Normally 12% of the space is reserved on your drives for System Restore. So if you keep installing a lot of applications, Restore points will get created and will start occupying large space. So it is better to delete your restore points if you want to free up some disk space.
- Go to Start Menu – >Programs ->Accessories ->System Tools and run “Disk Cleanup”
- When the Disk Cleanup window opens, select ‘More Options”
- Click on the Clean Up button under the System Restore option. This will delete all but the most recent restore point.
Though it is not something new, but most of us usually forget to do it and it takes some precious space.
