Dear Friends

Whilst defragging my (H) external hard drive I noticed that it was spending an inordinate amount of time on the restore points.

Because I only use this drive to provide a daily backup of my (D) data drive I did not require restore points on this drive, I therefore decided to turn the restore point option off. However upon restarting my computer I found the restore points had not been deleted.

Can anybody please advise me how to safely delete completely all the restore points on this drive.

Hello Mike.

To remove those restore points..
  • Click on Start > Run and type:
  • Click OK > More Options tab.
  • Click Clean Up in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points.
You can then disable system restore to prevent more from being created.

With Regards,
The Panda
