This post shows students and new users the steps to delete a restore point in Windows 11. A restore point can be quite useful in situations where you want to revert to a previous version to correct problems in Windows.

If you encounter a problem in Windows for any reason, a restore point can roll back the operating system to an earlier functional state. This can be a lifesaver, especially if problems in Windows cannot be fixed.

In that case, a restore point can be used to restore the operating system, saving tons of work and money to get your computer working again.

That being said, restore points can also take up a significant amount of disk space. If your computer is healthy and you are running out of disk space, you can delete the Windows restore point to free up space.

Deleting restore points to free up disk space is probably not recommended and is something you don’t want to do. It is better to add additional storage to increase free space than to delete restore points that are important when you need to restore your computer.

If you are unable to add more space and you are okay with deleting Windows Restore Points, just follow the steps below to do so.
