    Default Suggested Max Usage Restore Point Setting

    Guys..On my Laptop with a 4gb memory but running 32bit windows 7 I keep getting full with restore points what would be a sensible limit to set the max usage slider to...I dont want to keep deleting them all...although I have Acronis back up and Mozy online backup too...
    As always I feel more comfortable with some steer from you gentlemen..

    I think by default 15% space is reserved for System restore points. The default settings are the best. But if you feel try keeping it at 10%.

    Customize Windows Vista System Restore Options. may also interest you.

    It is usually suggested that keep it to about 20%, although I have run it at 5% which was ok for what I use my pc for. However I would not suggest that for most people. I would suggest 15% is about the mnimum for safety.
