Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit

I had suddenly my System partition occupancy suddenly jumped from about 50 GB to almost 160GB: TreeSizeFree software indicated that over 100GB was taken by files in the C:/System Volume Information, that contains restore Points, and the major portion of these were created in August 2015 when my Win7 tried to update to Win10 with multiple update failure because of incompatible graphic driver for NVIDIA Geforce 330M card !
So have to get rid of these Restore points and find how to stop Win10 upgrades but still keep Win 7 updates...

Hi f6gnz and welcome to SevenForums,
That's pretty messed up,
I would imagine disk cleanup and clean up system files then more options will remove all of the restore points
Disk Cleanup - Open and Use

Disk Cleanup : Extended

But first review this to alter your windows update settings and there's other links to remove the updates causing the mess on here too,
Feel free to ask a new question or on this thread
Please help me get rid of the Windows 10 upgrade

Read Option #13 again in the tutorial.

124 gigs of restore points is quite large.

I use 5% and some use 10%
