I don't have a box that allows me to see restore points older than 5 days.
When I go to Restore, I can use the recommended restore point or click a
radio button to look at other restore points. When I check that button I

When I do the command line option for checking on the allocated space I get
Used Shadow Copy Storage space: 36.542 GB
Allocated Shadow Copy Storage space: 38.382 GB
Maximum Shadow Copy Storage space: 42.454 GB
