the amount of hard disk space allocated to SR, thus reducing the amount of restore points.
As your friend suggested, turning off SR will wipe out all previously held restore points. Turning it back on will start a new count.
I had a problem with OE which I solved by going to a restore point which predated the problem. I've been told I might want to now create a current restore point. While I will do that, I am just wondering if it is necessary several automatic restore points have been created since Oct 21?
A friend told me that I should close System Restore so as to purge all existing restore points before I create new. I really didn't understand his reasoning and am hesitant to do that since I am unsure as to the possible need for them in the future. Do you see any advantage in doing that?
