Increase hard drive space for System Restore

Increase hard drive space for System Restore
1. Goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore
2. Look for the DWORD Value 'DiskPercent'
3. The Default value is 'C'
4. You can change the default value up to 'F' which is 15% of your drive or any combination of letters A-F that could allow you to use up to 100% of your drive (if you so stupidly chose.)
5. After you make changes, go check out your System Restore settings and you will notice that you can actually increase the maximum disk space you can use.

    this article was excellent. thankyou VERY much...! i could see that my computer was only allowing me to look back a week but sometimes i could do with being able to go back further. i changed the value to e and it has given me 9392Mb which im sure will be more than enough. i have never tweaked or modified anything in my registry before and your instructions were simple. thankyou very much... craig (uk)

    "'F' which is 15% of your drive" Excellent. However, I think in the above phrase you meant "'E' which is 15% of your drive"
