I use restore points on my Windows XP Pro machine. They have saved my bacon many 'a many times (mostly from my own self - but a few times from those from the outside.)

Since the creation of a restore point is generally automatic, and can consume MBs all over the drive; I'd like to know how to manage them better.

I know I can disable the capability - which will remove all restore points; but I'd prefer to remove only those from a specified date and older.

I've not yet figured that out.

Can someone help me on this? :confused:

Thanks.

system restore is allocated a certain amount of space on your hard drive (usually set by you) what will happen as you fill that space is that your oldest backup will be auto overwritten. Not sure is there is nay other way in which you can actually have more control over it though

Well, duh....

I knew about that - I must'a had a brain cell die or something.

I do appreciate your help though...

AcaCandy,

Happy Easter to you also. I have been very busy lately and it hard to get some free time to help others, which is relaxing to me. My wife thinks I am crazy. She goes shopping, which I think is crazy. Oh well each to their own, as they say.
