Part of windows XP and Server 2003 was the system restore function – this is great if you need to roll back your system post software, driver or hardware upgrades.

However it starts causing problems as its also gobbling up your HDD space and unless you “show” operating system files you wont know its there until you’ve run out of space.

The easiest way to see how much space is consumed:
1. Open the command prompt as administrator
2. Run #vssadmin list shadowstorage
Note the values for used, allocated and maximum space

To break it down by restore point:
1. Open the command prompt as administrator
2. Run #vssadmin list shadows

To resize and set a maximum size (as not set by default) – Note some restore points may be lost:

1. At the command prompt run #vssadmin /on=[driveletter:] /for=[driveletter:] maxsize=[numberGB]
2. Example #vssadmin /on=E: /for=E: maxsize=20GB
3. A prompt will display confirming the new maxsize
