System Restore Points - Windows 7


New Member
Hello Everyone,

I hope your reading this message, after reading, feel free to reply !

Microsoft System Restore is located in Control Panel in 'System'. There is a tab called 'System Protection'. That is where the System Restore is. If you click on 'Configure' you will see something that is telling you how many MB or GB that you have used when using System Restore Points. Everyone will get this, when you first get a update from Windows Update, it will automatically do a Restore Point. So when you look in at your first restore point. It will be like 74 MB. After that your not doing anything, your just doing normal stuff. When you look back in again. It has increased to some like 78MB or more. This is due to System Configuration, your system randomly sets it.

Please feel free if you get this.

Just to let you know, this is completely normal !!

A) Click on the System icon.
