I have the suspicion that this is a very common question but i could't find the answer here.

In my c:\_restore\archive there are more than 3000 files named fsXXXX (with xxxx a numer)

I suspect these have anything to do with the options to restore a system to the config of a certain earlier time.
But on this rather old computer 3 gig is a lot of space so the question is, can I delete them ? maybe except the newest one ? Can i configure the system not to make these files ? or only if I manually want to ?

My thanks are already enormous :tazz:

Hi paultjep! Welcome to G2G!

What I would do if I was you is disable system restore. Follow this link for how to do this.

Once you have rebooted your computer, follow the steps on the link, but this time turn system restore back on.

If you need to clean up your system of unnecessary files download Easy Cleaner from here: http://www.majorgeek...ownload414.html

It does a good job of removing files that are no longer needed.

Use UNNECESSARY and REGISTRY only. (I check the top 4 boxes in unnecessary )

Do not delete any Duplicate files as some are needed.

Don't be surprised if you find hundreds of unneeded files when you first run it.
