Defraggler versus Microsoft Optimizer

I believe Win 10 disables System Restore by default.

If it isn't it's worth turning off manually when using 3rd party defrag tools because it's been known for years they can trigger the creation of System Restore Points that hog the HDD space. It's just a matter of remembering to turn System Restore ("System Protection") back on if that's desired.

- There is another possibility to reduce the amount of space the SRPs occupy: The user can specify the % of disk space that is being used by System Restore. If e.g. 70% is considered to be too much then the user can reduce that % to say 60%, 50% or less.

- Windows keeps track of the files that were moved on the HD or SSD by a program (Not only Defraggler !!!) and those files are then included/archived/...... in the next SRP. But since Defraggler can move A LOT OF system files those SRPs can occupy LOTS of diskspace.
