Wow. I',ve never gotten rid of 60 GB of crap with CCleaner. I didn't even realize that much normal crap could build up. I've had huge storage of restore points and gotten space back that way, I think about 45 GB.

Cool.
I assume you resized the shadowstorage. Because else the system will reclaim the 45GBs over time.

Yes. I deleted all but the newest restore point, then downsized the shadowstorage limit.
I think five or six restore points should suffice, not the 30 or so I had in there
