System Restore.... Restore Points

    The mystery, at least to me, my PC was running almost 2 years...and it was
    not until about 3 weeks ago that System Restore began to save Restore Points
    the size of Approx 3 to 4GB daily. Prior to that the Restore Points were
    well under 1GB...it would be 3 to 6 days before I noticed the loss of 1GB.
    So why suddenly would the Restore File grew 1 one day from well under 1GB to
    between 3 to 4GB? That now is the issue I would like to know the answer
    to....and perhaps that file being saved with each Restore Point is not
    needed...I mean it wasn't needed for almost 2 years.......so I can't think
    over night it became important but it sure is eating up HDD space.

  2. What have you installed recently???

    I paid for Diskeeper some months ago... and had the same problem.
    Stopped using it, problem solved.

    Nothing; I have not installed nor altered anything on my PC for quite some
    time...perhaps as long as 10 mos ago.

  4. I hope that you at least install your anti virus updates.

    The AntiVirus Updates are done automatically...daily. I sure would like to
    know if someone has any idea what file grew so large after 2 years of my PC
    running that suddenly one day...and ongoing, is creating Restore Points of
    between 3 and 4Gb in size.
