Q. How Do I Clear System Restore Points To Improve Performance And Add A Little Spare Space?
A. Although system restore is a good feature, creating a system restore point every 10 hours or so, the files it stores can rapidly clog up your hard drive, thus reducing performance. The default space required by System restore is around 12% or 12GB on a 100GB hard drive. Obviously with this extra baggage no wonder performance is affected.
