    Two new “System Volume Information_restore….” files have appeared on my C drive, leaving me very little free space.

    1. Do these files hae to be on C? I have two ext HD’s with lots of free space.

    2. I can’t find them in Windows Explorer even though I have checked the box to view hidden files.

    I have done thorough cleanups with several cleaners; the culprits for the recent loss of space are the new SVI files. Any suggestions on how to get my free space back (I usually have about 24% and now have 17% on a very small system).

    Thanks!

    This link explains how to manage System Restore and also states that you must have it enabled on your system C: drive.

    Thanks Wofen….That gave me 43,300,000 links to choose from…:roll:
    I added “reclaim disk space” and it narrowed it down to a ‘only’ a few thousand…:lol:

    The ones I read were not relevant. One was perfect, but it required commands which did not seem to work–I think it was for Vista whereas I am XP….I am not familiar with command lines at all….

    In any case, everything went back to normal today..:-D ! I was concerned yesterday because two mammoth files (~150MB each) were not defragmentable–something which has never happened before….Today they were…..I’ll still have to see what else I can delete, as I am still at only 17% free space on a 10GB C:……
