Woodchip, i went to system restore can't find any of what you said! I just get the 3 options on the right to delete, create & restore & on the left, system restore settings. I've looked in there & can't see whet you say! 8% restart comp ??
EDd, it's only 7.01 GB embarrasingly, but i only use it for the internet & emails. Now 5.85 GB is used & 1.15 GB is free, before i did the restores & installed & reinstalled the bluetooth software, it was about 50/50. Amateur i know Gaz:(
woodchip and I are talking about the system restore in control panel.
system restore will be using 12% of your hard drive space. So for a 7Gb hard drive, that would be around 840Mb. Quite a lot for a small hard drive.
I would goto start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore. Go back to your first restore point, the oldest one.
When the computer has rebooted. Right click my computer > properties > system restore > highlight "C" and pick settings. Move the slider down to 250Mb. This should give you scope for one or two restore points.
Go back to system tools > system restore and create a new restore point, call it good.
Now download and run crap cleaner. it's free click here. Untick the cookies section if you want to keep your web passwords.
When you have done all that. Check what space you have on the hard drive.
I'll have a go at that, but earlier, i tryed to restore back to 2nd earliest on Feb 5th & it took like 1 & half hrs & then when it rebooted it said ' system couldn't restore to that point' It took ages.
Couldn't i just keep deleting last one until all gone?
