  1. Out of storage when restoring system


    Hi, I've been trying to restore my computer after it has refused to boot up yesterday morning. It boots perfectly fine into safe mode and I can system restore in the recovery menu. The problem is that I've already deleted 8 gb of space to get to 10.9 gb free, and its still saying that the system restore runs out of space. My drive size is 99.2. 10.9 free, and 88.3 used up. Do I need to clear more space or is it a bug?

    :)

    Out of storage when restoring system

    Missing icons / buttons after System Restore

    Hi Terrie,

    To address your concern, we suggest that you try to undo the restore or pick another restore point.

    Please follow these steps to access system restore:

    • Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select Control Panel.
    • Search Control Panel for Recovery.
    • Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.

    Let us know how it goes.
