I've seen in some cases that over 30GB has been freed up by deleting all bu the latest restore point.
So very true. This is often unaccounted for when setting up a primary partition. It's a rather double-edged sword in that it takes up a bunch of space and is of no use at all... until it saves you.

to the OP - while I may be stating the obvious to some - keep in mind that partitioning your 2nd 500GB drive into 3 drives is "logical" partitioning on the same physical drive.

You will need backups of all 3 assigned drive letters (E:\ F:\ G:\ ?) as you will lose it ALL if you have a physical drive failure.
