If your hard drive is running low on available disk space, then you will see on a fairly regular basis as your hard drive fills up is the Low Disk Space warning: "You are running out of disk space on Local Disk [drive]. To free space on this drive by deleting old or unnecessary files, click here."
Sometimes, you may just need to ignore or disable your Windows low disk space. But it is not so simple when the problem is on the C: drive. In order for your computer system to operate properly it needs a minimum amount of available disk space on the system drive.
If you ignore this warning, then Windows will purge the ALL System Restore points, and suspend the System Restore function. System Restore will not be reactivated until 200MB of disk space becomes available on the system drive.
