That's not good, that it's incrementing so much so fast.
Anyway, to empty it just turn off system restore and turn it on again.
http://www.online-tech-tips.com/windows-vista/enable-disable-system-restore-vista/ tells how to do it in Windwos Vista, but it's more or less the same in other versions of Windows.
Did you know you can set a limit to the maximum space used? Default is quite high, but if you set it to 5 GB it suffices for normal circumstances.
Okay so my HDD has been filling up even when i haven't downloaded anything. i got tree size to scan and found that system volume information is taking up all the space.
i only have 150 gbs of personal stuff from games, to music.
can i delete some of these redundant looking files?
if i do will it damage my computer?
and how can i delete them if possible?
