    I know Vista uses 15% of HD by default for system restore and there is no simple access to change it. I haven.t been able to find out anything about Windows 7 is it much the same?

    I found what I was looking for in the advanced system settings. In Windows 7 they did add a slider to adjust the size you wanted to allot to system restore. In Vista it is annoying to have 15% of the HD allotted to system restore and no simple adjustment available I did find out how to change it with command prompt.
