Windows 7: Changing partitions & creating restore points

Changing partitions & creating restore points

I recently had to reinstall windows after my computer was blue screening on start up. I didn't have repair disks (my own fault!) but I had a version of windows 7 home premium, put in my product key and reinstalled my drivers. When setting up the computer I was trying to make a restore point and it said there wasn't enough space. I went to 'manage' on my computer to look at the partitions but I'm not really sure what I'm looking at. Can someone tell me if this looks right?! http://i.imgur.com/0EEcust.png

Should I make D bigger? Or should I not create my restore point there? Also should I delete the OEM partition as it is not been used at all?

Thanks for any help!!

Try setting up this shortcut:
System Restore Point Shortcut

Then create the Restore Point using it. You have plenty of free space.

The problem may be the Lenovo D: drive. Remove it from System Restore. It shouldn't be there in the first place.

System Protection - Change Disk Space Usage

Select D: then click on Configure and select Disable System Protection.

This only affects the D: drive.
