I ran system restore on my computer (I know, crazy me). Now I have a lot less room on my hard drive, almost as iff all the information is still on there. I had somewhere around 95 GB left on my c drive now I only have about 24 GB left. Is there anyway I can either recall the missing data? If not how do I open up more space so I can get back to having half my hard drive free again?

Hi ansondolby. Welcome to G2G. Have you tried to go back to
system restore and tell it to undo last restore?

Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Open System Restore. Create a new restore point just to be safe. Once done go back to System Tools and open Disk Cleanup. Click on the More Options tab then click the Clean up button under System Restore. Clcik Yes then Ok to complete the cleaning.

Right click My Computer then click Properties. Click the System Restore tab then the Settings button. Using the slider set your Disk space usage down to about 3%. Click OK - Apply - OK.

You should now have a decent sized System Restore. You can also right click on the Recycle Bin then Properties and set that to 3% to reduce spaced used.
