I have Win7 and I make a Restroe Point every other Day.

 

Am I right that a restore Point is 100GB in size?

Doesn't seem right, unless you are making changes during each day (settings,etc.), installing programs.

 

You can in system protection check the disk space usage in configuration settings. You can adjust the maximum disk space used for system protection.

Should be only set to 1% about 9.31GB, maybe yours is set higher.

 

As disk spaces fills up older restore pointe then will be deleted to make room for new ones.Unless you want it higher then 9.31GB.

You mean % ? Well 1 terabyte can hold quite alot, just matters how many restore points at a time you are making or keeping.

 

Like said after awhile they get deleted mattering to the amount  (%) you specify.

 

Default is 1%. I feel 9GB is enough.

up to 9.31GB, does not mean how many, just up until 9.31GB is used.

Then believe it will delete past ones when new are created.

 

If you want more space, set it more then 1%
