    Windows System Restore - Configure Restore Point Space


    Please Note:
    The first step may appear to be incorrect as it applies to creating a restore point; however, we are simply using the "create steps" to get us to the space configuration screen.


    To configure the amount of space used by Windows System Restore restore points, follow these instructions:

    - Windows 10 + Windows 7 + Windows Vista -
    Click on START | type create | select "Create a Restore Point" at the top of the menu -
    Sysnative Forums Screenshot

    - Windows 8.1 + Windows 8 -
    Bring up a Search box (WIN + S keys) and type create into it; select "Create a Restore Point"; press ENTER -

    Sysnative Forums Screenshot



    1. Select (left-click one time) the drive or partition you wish to configure Windows System Restore point space for
    2. Click on Configure



    1. Make sure System Protection is turned ON
    2. Move the lever with your mouse (left-click & hold mouse button down) - slide it to the left or right to decrease or increase the amount of space you wish to allocate to Windows System Restore for the selected drive
    3. Click on Apply
    4. Click on OK


    You can now create a Windows System Restore point. Please see - http://www.sysnative.com/forums/wind...ows-vista.html

    Very important for systems with OEM Recovery Partitions

    System Restore should be turned OFF for OEM (system manufacturer) Recovery Partitions as is noted in this screenshot:

    Re: Windows System Restore - Configure Restore Point Space (Windows 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista

    In the other tutorial you use rstrui.exe which makes it apply regardless of the system language so it might be worth doing something similar here. Running
    SystemPropertiesProtection.exe will open that tab in System Properties :)

    Re: Windows System Restore - Configure Restore Point Space (Windows 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista

    rstrui is only good in Vista as I recall for use in creating a restore point.

    In Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, rstrui only brings up System Restore to restore your system (Vista too).

    I've always used the create otherwise in W7, 8, 8.1

    So, I have some changes to make!





    I do know about SystemPropertiesProtection.exe and should list it.

    Same with sysdm.cpl

    Re: Windows System Restore - Configure Restore Point Space (Windows 8.1, 8, 7 & Vista

    Sorry, I really didn't make myself clear! I wasn't saying you should use rstrui here, I was saying that you should use the equivalent which, in this case is SystemPropertiesProtection.exe :)
