You can use a 3rd party program such as WizTree to see the size of the files.
I prefer WizTree, it runs fast and they have a portable version.
Antibody Software - WizTree finds the files and folders using the most disk space on your hard drive

The restore points are saved in the System Volume Information folder.
I don't have any, but i expanded my folder so you can see what it looks like.
