[How to] Change System Restore Size


Recommended Posts

By Default, Vista uses a ton of system restore space and doesn't have an option to resize it anymore. Go to Start/Accessories and find the Command Prompt. Right click on it and click run as administrator. To find out how much it is using type in

vssadmin list shadowstorage

and hit enter. To view the number of restore points you currently have on your Computer run the following command

vssadmin list shadows

To change the size it uses, run

vssadmin resize shadowstorage /On=C: /For=C: /Maxsize=9GB

assuming Vista is installed on the C drive and you want it resized to 9 gigabytes.
