System Restore uses 12 per cent of hard drive space by default - necessary when XP was launched and hard drives were very much smaller.

If you go to System Propreties>System Restore and click on the Settings button, you can reduce the percentage to take up a much smaller figure and recapture some of your drive space.

In the case of my 60GB drive the percentage I use is five per cent, which equates to 2280MB.
