I have Windows ME (yuk) and have noticed that my hard disk is getting very full. I now have less than 1 meg on my 20 meg drive.
It seems that System Restore is taking a lot of my space 2 megs out of 20meg as when I run AVG anti virus checker I can see lots of files in the Restore\Temp\folders.
But Windows Explorer will not let me access these folders as they are hidden and I am prevented from unhiding them.
I went to Control Panel\System\Performance\File System and there was a slider from Min to Max for the System Restore files. It was on 2.75meg (max) so I moved it to just over Min at .80 meg, thinking this would help.
But there was still the same amount of hard drive space left.
I have re-booted with no luck and I have run Windows\Accessories\System Tools\Disk Clean Up with no luck. And Scan Disk.
Does any one know how I can erase the Restore\Temp\Files they have an extension of CPY (I think)
I have consulted Windows Help on System Restore but does not cover this situation.
Are there are turiorls anywhere on this ?
