How To Remove Old Restore Points


Recommended Posts

(You must only use this feature if you are 100% sure you will not need the old system restore points, because once they have been deleted... they are gone for good!)


System Restore automatically creates restore points by making shadow copies of Windows, these copies can take up memory and build up quickly as you use your computer.

By cleaning up System Restore points by Deleting all but the last restore point will free up memory and maybe slightly improve windows performance.


To remove all but the last system restore point follow these simple steps... Click the Start Button and type CleanMgr and Press Enter;

Choose your Default Hard Drive (normally Drive C) and click ok;


The clean Manager will now Search through your system for files to delete;


When Clean Manager is done Calculating, click on clean up my system files;


And again select your drive;


It is now calculating the system files to delete;


Now click The Clean Up Tab under "System Restore and Shadow Copies", to remove all but the most recent restore point;


Hope you found this useful!
