You can't adjust the amount for system restore in Vista like you could in XP so it eats up a lot of hard drive space.
I have seen a couple ways to adust it for a set amount, but I just delete all but the most recent restore points in disk cleanup and that works. I get back from 8 to 10 gig every week after I run cleanup.
Hope that helps
I have a 250Gig HD (okay 230 in real money). 20 is used on applications and saved items - Treesize application software confirms that.
But my space is shrinking at about a Gig a day. Currently it says I have 180Gigs free space when in reality I should have 210Gigs. I am virus free (according to AVG), the machine is only a couple of weeks old.
It is a Packard Bell iMedia 2579 - Core 2 Duo E6300 processor 1.86 Ghz with 1GB Ram and a HD of 250GB - running on Vista Home Premium.
Can anybody tell me what is happening?
Like I said, application software (and Vista itself) tells me I have used approximately 20GB of my Hard Drive, so what has happened to the other 30GB that is clearly shown as used, but there is no indication on how, or where?
It has got me flumuxed.
Cheers and thanks very much if you have any ideas. I just don't know where to start.
