It doesn't really matter right now as you have backups and are about to change the system anyway.

You can switch it off if you want, this will disable system restore and remove all restore points.

Once you have done that, have a look at your partitions again.

You have managed to gain over 50GB by deleting the old stuff so far. You could just leave it at that for now, but if you are sure that these are merely installers etc, then by all means delete them.

Post again when you have done that, and have your partition manager running.

I have just installed another disc in this machine so that I can do a step by step for you.

I will post a screen shot of every step as we go through it. If anything is unclear at any step, wait until you see the screenshot before continuing, and if still unclear, ASK!

This is the partition we want to resize;




As you can see this partition C: contains the Boot partition, and has 902.81 GBytes of unused space.

We want to retain at least 50 Gbytes for the Boot partition.

( I have a slightly older version of partition manager on this disc, so the pictures are not identical to your version, but they should suffice. If not, then ask).

OK. I have resized the Boot partition by selecting "Resize/move Partition" and then moved the slider to about 50GBytes, and rebooted the machine. This is the result;



Disk 1 = C: now has the system reserved partition of 100.00 MB

The boot partition of roughly 50 Gbytes,

and 882.91 GBytes of unallocated space;
