Keeping Restore Points

by snozzau / March 19, 2007 1:42 PM PDT

Sorry if this been asked before.
My laptop hard drive is starting to fill quicker than I would like so I did a search with discspace explorer and found a lot of filled space was with restore points-about 80 of them.
Is it necessary to keep them all or can I just keep the latest ones.
Thanks ,

all but the most recent restore point. Go to my computer, right click on the C drive, properties then disk cleanup. Select the advance option, more options and there you will find system restore. You can do a cleanup which will remove all but the most recent restore point.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
