    system restore and imaging.

    I have a one T external drive I image to and it recently showed that 2 - 23 or 30 GB images were filling the drive. A friend, using Treesize, explained that this is due to the restore points taking up space. I changed the scale from 2% to 1 and then created one point. There were about 5 or 6 points.
    Can you suggest a system to have the point or points for retrieval use yet be able to image so that lot of them are not included?
    Is it as easy as creating one before imaging and deleting the rest?
    It was hard to believe that 5 or 6 points took up all that room on my external drive so that I could only use 2 images.
    6x's 30 = 180 and the other two = 240 GB total. I have about 900 GB on the drive so it still does not add up.
    Thank you

    I used the app Treesize which showed the recycle bin in each eternal drive was taking up the room. I did not know there was one. By highlighting the drive and clicking on Window's recycle bin it emptied the external drive's trash and all is well.
