  1. System Restore full even when disabled.


    Is this a bug or some weird oversight by myself??? A while back I noticed some of the machines I manage with fairly small SSD's were becoming full very quickly. When prepping new machines, I always make sure System Restore is disabled. However, when trying to free up some space, I noticed multiple machines showed System Restore using the max (10%) drive space, even though it was set to disabled... What's more strange is I am unable to delete these restore points. If I click delete, it shows 0 bytes used, but upon opening the window up again, it still shows the same usage. The only way I can seemingly remove them is set the allowed usage down to 1%.

    Oh yes... Windows 10 Enterprise. I think I first noticed it around the 1809 release. And no usage during the preperations (at least not until the machine is on the domain).

    How to delete inactive System Image Restore Points in System Restore

    Windows 10 64-bit.
    When I click "show more restore points" in System Restore I see a bunch of old "system image restore points" that were deleted in past and do not correspond to any currently active restore points. Clicking any of these old restore points, I simply get an error message saying they could not be found, and to select another restore point instead.I would like to delete these restore points listings but have been unable to do so.
    So far, I have tried steps mentioned below without any luck :

    Disk Cleanup through (CSystem Restore full even when disabled. :) Properties
    Disable System Protection (OFF and ON) in System Protection for OS (CSystem Restore full even when disabled. :)
    Disk Space Usage to minimum (slider button all the way to the left then 'Delete all restore points for this drive'),
    Delete all shown Restore points in CCleaner (the problem ones do not show here),
    Reset Windows Backup to Default in Windows 10 with 'Reset_Windows_Backup.bat' utility.

    Any suggestions highly welcome.
