      I recently had big svi files on a w7 laptop, I used this below process to remove them
      http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/5482/...-in-windows-7/
      There are sections to set max disk space usage and to delete all previously created restore points.
      Although the is os differs the process should be similar.

      I do tend to think 'outside the box' so others may not always share the same views.

        IIRC, stopping and restarting the Volume Shadow Copy service removes all or all but the latest restore point.
