Windows 7: System Restore Problem

System Restore Problem

I noticed my restore points were being deleted for some reason and I went to the System restore settings of my computer, and being oblivious to what I was looking at I confused my recovery drive with my C: and I turned it on and gave it a gig of disk space usage.

After I realized I was configuring the wrong one I went back turned it off and deleted restore points but It won't let me put the max usage back to zero it will only let me keep it at 2% (320.00MB).

Is this going to cause any problems or is it fine?

Hello Karizma,

That's fine since that setting is only the "Max Usage", and is how much can be used. What matters is what it says for "Current Usage" since that is the amount that is currently actually be used on the HDD.

Hope this helps,
