Thank you for WindowsSeven forums. I have just registered but during the last 6 months or so I have used the resources provided here - particularly the tutorials - to set up my Wndows Home Premium x64 system.
Looking at one of the tutorials: System Protection Restore Points - Delete
I have a couple of questions I hope someone can help me with.
Options 3 and 4 of the tutorial cover deleting system restore points selectively
or System Restore Explorer
My questions about doing such selective deletions of restore points with these utilities are:
1. Does it actually save any disk space; or is it simply cleaning up a list so that after the deletion of unneeded ones only the restore points considered useful are presented in the list - whereas system restore disk usage is left unaffected.
2. Is there any risk in deleting restore points at various arbitrary points; are they interdependent? Will deleting some cause a risk of others not working?
Essentially, if it is possible, I would like to keep restore points done at the begiining (after drivers, windows updates and installation of programs etc.) and delete the remaining ones except the most recent one - but I only want to do this to save significant disk space by the selective deletion.
