WinXP Restore Points

By sunrock ·
In WinXP, if the 12% (max can allocate) of my disk space equals 500MB and there are 20 restore points, where do I go to find out how much of the 500MB I have used already? I could have used 50MB, 100MB, 250MB, etc. I would like to keep track of thisso where do I get this information.

Also, if I have 20 restore points, and I use restore point number 12, does this mean that all of the changes that were made after restore point number 12 will be gone or only the changes made between restore points 12 and 13 not 12 and 20?

1)Click Start,Control Panel,select Performance and Maintenance,then System,click on the System Restore tab,click the Settings button,a column will be labeled with Disk space usuage

2)The Restore Points will not be deleted,it will only restore to the state of the machine at this point,any hardware or changes made after Restore Point 12 will not be available

When you open the Control panel,clicking on the Performance and Maintenance icon,then click System icon at bottom of Page,on the screen that shows you will have tabs and one will be System Restore,when you click on this tab,in the middle of the pageyou should see a settings button,this should give you a another panel to Disk Space usage.

If this is not true and you donot have a restore point,click Start->Programs->Accessories,then select System Restore from the menu,now you should have the option of viewing System Restore or Creating Restore Point.

Hope this helps

In your response to question one, you said "click on the System Restore tab, click on the Settings button" but there is no "Settings" button. Could you tell me why? This tab shows you that you can use up to 12% of your disk space but it does not tell you how much of the 12% you have used.

Thanks for answering question two.
