Restore Points

Hello All
I would like to know just how many restore points I can have?
Can I select the restore points I want to keep?
Lastly how do I delete the restore points I don't want.

Many Thanks.

Hello Ralph,

You can keep however many your hard drive will hold with whatever maximum storage size you set on the hard drive. The average restore point will be about 1.3 GB or so.

The tutorial below can help show you how to delete restore points. Option Three and Option Four are great for specific restore points.
