Needed to system restore a few times to get all back to working. C drive went from 19 gigabytes to 29. Is this a concern I need :thumbsup: :flowers: or I can forget it. Still have more than sufficient space.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

You did a system restore and chances are you have more space taken up then you did before the roll-back.

You can go to My Computer right click your hard drive, choose Properties, click the disk clean up tab, then delete any temporary files, this will retrieve your disk space.
