    System restore point: not enough disk space


    I'm trying to restore a system restore point through windows 8 installation but it gives me the error that I do not have enough disk space.
    is there any way I can free up disk space so I can do a system restore?
    maybe through command prompt?

    ive also tried to do the option of Refresh your PC, but it's also giving me the same error.

    any help would be great. Thanks

    So how much space is used on your Hard drive?

    Does not say.
    But I ran command prompt using "dir" and gave me this
