A strange Vista HD memory question..

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
From a freind.

Quote:
Now, the size on my HD has been varying the past little while, from 230gb down to 190 (right now) and yesterday it was at 210.

Last time i did a disk cleanup there was an option to check for hibernation memory. Now every time I check this, it's not there anymore
I've never come across this, so any help would be appreciated. And by appreciated I mean reps.

Its most likely system restore eating the hard drive space.
I disabled it and reenabled it and got 50gb back.
You can also limit the amount of hard drive space Vista uses.

I set mine at 3gb like the example.

Set the limit just a bit more than how much ram the system has, then you are safe.


Example: my pc has 4gb ram, so I limit it to 5gb and Ive never had issues

as someone said, turn off system restore, and run disk clean up, check all the checkboxes in disk cleanup though
