  1. where are all PRO's gone ??? :(
  2. Run disk cleanup. One of the options in disk cleanup is to delete all but the last restore point. If you don't think you'll need to do a system restore soon, you should have it remove your restore points.
  3. @hawkeye22 ... i have deleted all restore points ... even i have turn off back up and restoring option
  4. Browse your windows explorer for huge file sizes. That'll tell you what is eating up the storage space.
  5. Run windirstat. It will show a graphical representation of files/folders and you can see where the big ones are at.
