    Bonjour,

    Thanks for this helpful tutorial

    Here is my small problem


    The second disk (F) has been used on an another computer and I try to have it clean
    I would like to delete definitively the shadows storage as explained here
    Is it a syntax issue ? still testing

    Hello @D4ni3l,

    The command should be this below from step 5 in Option Three in the tutorial to delete all shadows on F. The delete shadowstorage command option is no longer available in Windows 10.

    vssadmin delete shadows /For=F: /all /quiet

    As a test, see if toggling system protection on and off for the "F" drive may delete the storage space.

    I did it first without success and cleared the restore points (140GB from an old system)
    i am afraid I will have to accept it (it does not take any space now)

    If this is a data drive, you could format the "F" drive to clear it. You would of course need to temporarily copy anything you didn't want to lose to another location first.

    Run PowerShell in admin mode
    Code:
    Disable-ComputerRestore -Drive "C:\"
    vssadmin List ShadowStorage /On=C:
    vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=400MB
    vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=10%
    Enable-ComputerRestore -Drive "C:\"
    Checkpoint-Computer -Description "Initial"
    vssadmin List ShadowStorage /On=C:
    Copy & paste the code above in powershell windows

    This is my quickest way to delete & recreate "System Restore Points" on C: drive

    thanks again for this tread
