Hi raulandrei33 :)

I think I know what's happening. Click on your Windows Start Menu, then right-click on Computer and select Properties. From there, click on Advanced System Settings in the left pane. Go under the System Protection tab, and click on the Configure button. Tell me what is the maximum space allowed for the System Restore, and how much space is currently used by the Restore Points please.

So it was indeed like I just said. The System Restore was taking up too much space on your drive. Well glad that you found the issue and fixed it :)
