have you ever bought a pc with a large hard drive, and two days later , you come to find that a large chunk (about 15gb/103gb) of your new drive missing? Well, when this happened to me, i shutoff system restore, and as quick as day, i got my 15gb back!! In my opinion, system restore has no use for me, but for others, it may be necessary. If you want to keep system restore on, but save disk space, the command below can reduce the space taken by system restore on any hard disk in your system!! The example below reduces system restore space to 3 GB on the C:/ drive:
vssadmin resize shadowstorage /On=C: /For=C: /Maxsize=3GB
Please test this out, and tell me what it did. On my pc, i did use it, but i turned system restore off completely to save disk space. Please post your thoughts on this tweak, and what i chose to do with system restore. If you ever need a tweak, write a post with two stars before the title so i can know you really need one, and i will search and see if i can find you one.
