I have three hard drives:
C: which is a dedicated system drive (only Windows and installed programs)
E: personal documents
M: archived media files (video, photos, music)
I've noticed that in System Restore settings you can select which drives to enable it.
Currently I see it is enabled for all three hard drives (C, E and M). Shouldn't it be enabled ONLY to drive C - my system drive? After all... it is a SYSTEM restore utility, not a complete back-up program for all my personal data...
I remember some weeks ago, due to some strange things going on in my computer, that I used system restore to bring my system back to how it was a few days before. The restore was successful, but then I noticed that a couple of files that I had created in the recent days had disappeared! This got me thinking that maybe my computer was under some kind of malicious attack. But now, seeing how my System Restore utility is set up... I'm thinking maybe it has to do with having drives E and M enabled.
Am I right?
Should I only have C enabled?
And what if I have only one hard drive but with two partitions (as is the case with my laptop), should I have System Restore enabled ONLY on the partition dedicated to the system?
