The space used is dependant on the space you allocate.
Open System Restore:
Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore.
Click "System Restore Settings" on the left side.
You can adjust the space using the slider.
Unless you will never need System Restore, do not reduce space too much.
Although most do not feel the need for the default 12%.

Try disabling shadow copy on the volume in question and reboot.
