    I'm running Vista 5600 and noticed that my 160GB SATA drive had less than 1gb
    of free space, eventhough it ony contained 40gb of data.
    I looked an found that the drive had 120-130gb of restore point data files
    in the "System Volume Infrormation" dir. I was able to delete these and
    regain the real estate my drive should have.
    System restore is supposed to delete the olderest restore point when the
    drive is becomming full? Isn't it?
    Any idea why vista needs to restore 1-2 times every day?
    Shouldn't it be when ever the system parameters change or a new program is
    installed?

    Any help would be appreciated.
