Having finally succeeded in making a clone of my hard
drive as backup, I updated with SP2 rather painlessly.
However, I now have about 2GB more in that partition
than I used to have. Maybe it's normal, and I can spare
the space, but I'm wondering about Restore Points. I'd
like to ask how to look at what restore points it's
saving for me, and how to cancel making them, and how to
get rid of any that are there.

Thank you.

If your computer is working properly and you are satisfied that all is
well with your SP2 upgrade then go into Accessories - System Tools -
Disk Cleanup and click on the Nore Options tab.
In the More Options window click on the Clean up.. button in the
System Restore (bottom) section.

Then go into Control Panel - System - System Restore and use the
Settings button to change the amount of disk space allocated to System
Restore to about 800 mb.

That should reduce your disk space requirements for System Restore
while still keeping it in operation.

You do not want to get rid of System Restore. It is an extremely
valuable safety feature and dispensing with it is comparable to
jumping out of an airplane without a parachute.

Good luck
