Step 5: Now of you really need/want to reduce the space used by Restore Point you can also turn it off completely (I would not recommend it). To do that repeat Step 1, Step 2 and Step 3
Step 6: Then select Turn off system protection and click OK to save changes.
Warning: If you decrease the disk space to be smaller than the space that is currently being used by system protection, older restore points, including previous versions of files, will be deleted.
