    Funny thing is that I haven't yet got round to setting the restore parameters in the other three.

    One of the shortcomings of forums when posts are coming frequently is highlighted by AEOUserLD posting the answer at exactly the same time as I was finding it myself. Also, my one fingered typing takes me so long that replies come in while I'm distracted.

    Not a slight to worry about, though.

    Any of these can help find the problem. The first tool listed is the best one.

    I have a very similar problem and have not seen an answer. My c: drive, an SSD, is losing space constantly. I have determined it is the system protection feature that is causing the problem. The real problem is the max usage slider keeps moving to 100% by itself. I set it ti 2% or whatever, and it frees up a lot of space. A few weeks later my space is low again and I check and the max usage slider is at 100% again. Is there a fix, or disscussion, for this particular issue?
    I am using win10 home. BTW, this same issue occurred on win7.

    Essentially, that is the workaround at this time.
    My other Win10 peeve is unreliable sleep or hibernate.
