Windows 7: Automatic restoration point increases in size.

Automatic restoration point increases in size.

Greetings. Excuse my English is not my native language.

I have a question that gnaws at me for several days. The space allocated for restore points on my PC is 1% or 9.31 GB. The point is that from one day to another note that I had gone 2 GB of space without installing anything new, it occurred to me to look restore points and my surprise was that even though the allocated space was 9.31GB current use was 12.2 GB.

I did not give much importance and delete all restore points, when you restart Windows automatically create a restore point, which set me had a weight of 575.3 MB.

The next day I realized again that I was gone 1GB of nowhere and revisiting restore points, I find myself so the point was created Windows now weighs 1.5 GB. And so on, the next day and weighed 1.7GB.

Remove Windows restore point and returned to create another, which weighed 425Mb and a few hours and see that weighs 500 MB, and thus increases in size.

I searched on Google and can not find anything similar, not knowing if normal behavior analysis have run my antivirus ESET Smart Security 8, license payment, Malwarebytes, AdwareCleaner, and none Superantispyware throws virus or malware.

It is normal then the increased size of restore points?
