thanks
Microsoft says...Well simple answer is you need at least 300 megabytes (MB) of free space on each disk that is 500 MB or larger. “System Restore might use between three and five percent of the space on each disk. As the amount of space fills up with restore points, it deletes older restore points to make room for new ones.Jan 11, 2012

but i do not see how this will get the system restore working!
how do i delete very old system restore points?
thanks guys

Using standard Disk Cleanup in Win 7, you simply click on Clean up system files button. Just follow this link starting at step 5, it will delete all but most recent restore point as started at step 7.
Disk Cleanup - Open and Use

After that you could set slide to % point your comfortable with. Can’t answer if that will get restore working, unless it removes garbage that then allow it to work.

o open Disk Cleanup on a Windows Vista or Windows 7 computer, follow these steps:
Click Start.
Go to All Programs > Accessories > System Tools.
Click Disk Cleanup.
Choose what type of files and folders to delete at the Files to delete section.
Click OK.

Hi Rick33,

You could also run Extended Disk Cleanup => Disk Cleanup : Extended.

I hope this helps!

thanks never heard of that one. looks a bit complicated for me!
the only way of removing most but not all of the old system restores is by using old software- that may have been 'adjusted' by now.
i would have like to go back to an earlier system restore when it work. suspect that cannot be done now.

No, because when you run Disk Cleanup suggested by Struggling7 [post #42], it will have deleted all the Restore Points except the last one!
