      This folder is occupying 66% of my C: partition, making backups difficult.
      Is there any way to slim it down?

      TIA

      I solved the size problem by turning off system restore on C:. I thought I had already turned it off since I backup regularly with Acronis True Image, but it had become active again somehow.
      SVI is now much smaller.

      Thanks to cyberSAR for the additional info.

      No need to disable System Restore. I create System Restore, Shadow Copy and Acronis backups, daily.
      Just limit the size of System Restore to 2%-5% depending on the size of your C drive.
