    You'll notice on the 3rd. image Restore image. I did a Restore to Sept 15, because I had deleted something that I wanted to get back. It did not restore back to Sept 15.
    That'll be the current allocated storage usage for system protection.

    If you like, you can turn off and on system protection to clear all storage usage, then create a new restore point afterwards to have on hand.

    I deleted all restore points. and now I'm only showing it used 21.20 MB. I'm shocked. I still don't understand how I could go from 162.41 GB restore point and now use only used 25.81 MB for the restore point. I only had 1 restore point. Would you please help me to understand this?

    The maximum space usage for system protection is used for more than just restore points. This same setting also determines the maximum disk space that can be used to store system images.

    Thanks Brink. I know that the settings are the amount of space that can be used for restore point. Mine was set at 10% and I reset that amount to 3%.

    If you had created a system image, that could account for the larger amount of space that was previously used.

    I appreciate your help. I'm not very computer literate, My computer is working fine, understanding this restore point was driving me crazy. Thanks

    I can certainly relate. It's easy to get confused with the way it works.

    I was having trouble when trying to reboot. The computer could not perform startup repair so I tried system restore. It ran all night and the screen now says "System Restore Finished". There is no restart button or anything else. Will anything else happen or should I press my computer's reset button?

    Hello patchel, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you did a system restore at boot, then it should have a restart option like in step 14 of OPTION ONE. You could reset the computer to continue booting to Windows to see if it has actually successfully finished.

    If you did a system restore from within Windows, then that should be it like in step 17 of OPTION TWO.

    It looks most like step 13 of option one, except the green bar is completely filled and it says "Finished"
