My hard disk space was 28.5 GB on Aug 23, 2005. After then, I installed few
softwares for my scanner, Nero, Power DVD, Yahoo DSL Browser and few more.
After finishing all the installation, I checked the hard disk space, it was
21.5 GB. Then I restored system to the point of Aug 23, 2005. Then I checked
my hard disk space again. It was only 17.5 GB. I am wondering how that could
happen. Please someone help me to find the solution to have more disk space
in my hard disk.

Thank you

System Restore does not restore your _entiree_hard_drive_ to a previous
state, it just restores key files.

simple really the restore point to restore to <after> the programs were
installed is still there - you can manage the space allowed for restore
points right click My Computer select Properties select System restore
select Settings good luck

Select Disk CleanUp, More Options, System Restore and remove all but the
latest restore point.
