How can I delete a restore point

In Win7: I know how to add a restore point but I don't know how to delete it. (I could want to delete it after creating a new one, to save disk space.)

You should have more than one restore point.

You can change how much space restore points consume.

If you must manually delete a restore point, CCleaner can do that in the tools > system restore area.
