Hello playerup and welcome to BC
To get rid of these files, you need to flush your restore points. Please be certain that your computer is at a fine working state before doing so. Then, create a fresh restore point.
To do this:
- Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
- Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.og of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
Once that is done, you will get rid of all the earlier restore points like this:
- Use Disc Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
- Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
- Click "Ok".
- Click the "More Options" Tab. Note: If you use the home version, Disk Cleanup will automatically run first to see what space can be saved. Once that has completed, then you will be able to see the More Options tab.
- Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
If you get a pop-up asking if you wish to proceed with doing this, click yes or okay.
You will now be rid of all the fragmented system restore files. You will also have at this point only 1 restore point.
