Shadow Storage Size

  rawprawn 09:59 20 Jan 2008

I recently lost my Shadow Storage on my laptop and had to reset it. I don't know what it was by default and I have reset it to 2gb max, I have a 120gb hdd.
can anyone offer any guidance?

Good afternoon skidzy, sorry for the delay. After reading your link I decided to resize again to max 6gb.which is about where I would have put the equivalent slider in XP. I have a 120 gb HDD but about 10gb is taken up by a Recovery partition and 6 gb is about 5% which I think should be enough.
Thanks for the imput, if you have further thoughts please post.

Hi again Rawprawn

For future reference about clearing some old restore points,follow Ed Botts page click here

Now whether this affects you or not...we will see,you have the option to clear old restore points and keep the most recent.

However i would advise creating a new restore point first if the machine is running ok and your happy with its performance.
