Windows XP Professional is set to monitor my system drive and allocate 12% of it's space for system restore.
I have a 150GB hard drive, and I think 12% is too much space to reserve for restore points. Keeping too many restore points on my hard drive slows down virus-scanning and disk defragmentation.
Can someone please tell me about how many restore points I should generally need to keep in windows XP Pro, and also about how many GB of space is generally required to save that number of restore points?
it's upto your need, 2 or 3 is ok.. .. i have enabled system restore on C rive only..
you can also change the amount of space to be used for system restore by going to properties of My computer & then system restore tab.. from settings you can fix the desired size..
