    Windows 8.1 - restore point


    I cannot set up restore point! It said: "It doesn't have enough disc space."
    Even I have slider moved to maximum disc space (configured), somehow it doesn't recognize that and I still have the same message! Please, help....I tried everywhere, but people helping me out with suggestions I already know! Do you have something new!? Thank you in advance!

    hello coockie ,welcome to eight forums ,how could we add something new when you didn't tell us what you tried .
    if the drive space is full moving the slider isn't going to help , you need to check to see that you harddive is not full ,

    Hello caperjack, thank you for your response. Well, to answer this matter: I have enough drive space. Only I didn't say, I changed my original hard drive 750 GB with SSDI 500GB, but I don't think it's important...I have about 375 GB of free space....
