Amount of Disk Space to Use.
This shows the amount of disk space that will be allocated for your Temporary Internet Files. By default Windows uses 10 percent of your Windows system partition. This amount can be significant if you use the 10 percent model. It is advised that you change this setting to a lower number such as 50 MB.

Understand that this is normal.
Your system restore makes a new image of your system files and registry once a week and whenever you install an update or program. This is normal and for your security. It will not overrun your drive since it is limited to 12% of your drive size by default, you can reduce this if you like to 8% or 10% if your drive is large enough, but only do this if you are truly running low on space. System restore will delete the oldest ones and keep the newest ones as it reaches its limits set.
IF you feel you do have a runaway infection that might be trying to fill up your drive, run Malwarebytes to find out for sure.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
