Large System Reserved space

  1. Hi;
    I just installed Diskeeper 2008, and am wondering why it always shows a large System Reserved space on the first row of all of my HDD's. I have no page file, no hibernate file.
    The system is RAID0 with two 160GB HDD's. I also have a 3rd HDD not in the RAID system, and it also has that large system area near the top.

    You referring to C:\System Volume Information? (whether on C and/or other drive letters). That's space reserved for System Checkpoint/Restores. You can set it to 0 but don't think you probably want to do that.

    Thanks. I might just reduce the amount reserved for System Restore.
