And why would you want to mess around in that folder? If you don't want that much space dedicated to system restore you can set a limit by going to Control Panel> System> 'system restore' tab> highlight the drive/partition you want to reset the limit for and go to the 'settings' button. I'm not sure, but you may lose all your restore points by tinkering with those settings so be sure to create a new one when you're done. As far as saving a 'historical' restore point... get some drive imaging software and image your drive and tuck it away... a much more secure solution in my opinion (vs experimenting in a system folder).Originally posted by DarkSiege
I found the folder....it has over 2 gig of those restore points! Does anyone know how to identify which folder is the one that i want to delete?

I have found a way to copy the restore points and their directories!
right click on the directory...then click properties. then goto the security tab. Then click add. type in your username. and make sure that the first 6 checkboxes are enabled. Then you can freely open the directory, browse, and even copy files to and from
now whether or not you can use this method to "backup" restore points...I don't know...but it's a start
and by doing this I noticed I lied...in the system volume info directory there is one file labeled tracking and then a drectory for each restore point you have
