Low disk space after usng Defraggler.

So I used Defraggler today, and my hard drive's free space went from 57GB to 31GB!


Any idea on how to get back all of that free space? I tried using System Restore, but it didn't go back.

The most common reason for this problem is the space taken by system restore.
Delete all of your restore points, then
Make a new one in case of future problems.

What if deleting them doesn't do anything?


Anyways, I'll try doing that since the ones I tried awhile ago were useless.


EDIT: It worked! Thanks!

While Defraggler worked great in XP, I had problems with it in Win 7. I've found Win 7's Native defragger works just fine for everything except system and program files in use while the defragger runs. Since all my system and program files are on an SSD, that isn't a problem since SSDs do not need to be defragged and should never be defragged. If one has their system and program files on a HDD and the percentage of fragmentations stays above, say, 5%, one can use the boot time defragger in the free version of Glary Utilities.
