    Server 2003 System Restore

    I have a server that seems to have some pretty large system restore points eating up the system volume

    What I would like to do is remove all the old system restore points. How do I do this? XP has a nice tab for system restore on the System Applet, however no such nicities with Server 2003

    Please help before I run out of disk space!

    Turn it off?

    unless you play with the server continually and expect to have to use System Restore

    :P

    not got server 2003 infront of me but if it was any where wouldn't be in system properties under system restore? or advanced like on xp?

    If all else fails you can disable the system restore service in the Services MSC.

    System restore is disabled by default on W2K3 server. If you wish to enable it then see this page:
