Disk Clean up tool to delete old restore points not working

By heidihaska ·
I am trying to free up disk space using all aspects of the disk clean up tool. I have not done this in a long time and know I have multiple restore points saved - which in the past have been a huge hard drive hog over time. I have repeated clicked the System Restore tab on the disk clean up menu - it them asks me if I am sure I want to delete old restore points. I click yes and then......nothing. I am down to 10% disk space on this hard drive but there are very few programs and files left on this drive. This is the drive where all system files automatically go. I am running on an old XP Acer lap top.

if disk clean up is not working then right-click "my computer" go to properties, select the system restore tab and turn off system restore, the computer will automatically delete all restore points on the pc. That will do the job.
