Many malware programs adjust the system restore point to 50% as a 'joke' which takes up valuable space and makes the computer sluggish.  I've had a few set as high as 75%. 

 

I have an arsenal of registry files .reg that allow me to quickly apply fixes.  How do I create, or where can I get (yes I Googled it :) a .reg file that will set the system restore of C:\ to 10GB like it is in the default settings?

 

I operate in Win 7, 8, and 10 - I'm guessing that registry entry hasn't changed and the .reg file will apply to all systems.

 

Any help would be great.  Thanks.

Awesome, thank you.  I tested the .reg and it did not adjust the size even after reboot.

 

To clarify, is this .reg for 10GB or 10% of the hard drive size?  I was hoping for 10GB for windows default regardless of hard drive size.

 

If there's any way I can help in return, just ask.

No problems your welcome.

 

 

If you have any problems with that key then this batch file will set it to 10GB exactly on any drive. Of Course run it as administrator.

Excellent!!  That's exactly what I needed and it works perfectly.  My arsenal has increased by the power of one [wringing hands together with an evil smirk].  Oh the sheer power I now wield.

 

Thank you for making that task simple.
