Heya folks,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with a question.
Does it matter which of my HDDs I pick to create restore points?
I noticed that by default they are always created on my C: drive, which is unfortunately the smallest of my disks - so I would like to designate another drive for the restore points if it doesn't affect anything.

Thanks!

Hi Knight :welcome:

System Restore will save the information in all the drives depending where the files to "backup" are located. Because the system files are normally in C: the SR will use more disk space on that partition/disk. What's the deal with the System Volume Information folder?

Ah, alright, best to keep it on C: then since that's where my operating system is.
Thanks! :D

also matters what's on other partition,if you want that to be restored in the process also.I would then keep restore on for that partition too.Am i right?Or moving everything to c: drive anyway.
