How many restore points do you have?

How much space do you have allotted to System Restore?

Hello Joseph,

This should be able to help find out what is taking up the space and help free up some space.

You could install WinDirStat to help figure out what is taking up so much space. You can find it here.

Expand the line "Packard Bell" (click on the little + in front) and see what is underneath. Look for the big ticket items. If it is not clear, keep expanding.

Well, here you have your answer. You have a lot of junk in Appdata > Local. Have a look what it is. Be aware that Appdata is a hidden folder which you have to unhide ( in Organize > Folders and search options > View tab).
