System Restore regularly tracks changes to your computer's system files, and uses a feature called System Protection to create restore points of selected hard disks in your computer. System Protection is turned on by default for the Windows 7 hard disk or partition on your computer.
This will show you how to turn System Protection On or Off for creating System Restore Points
for system settings and previous versions (shadow copies) of files in Windows 7
. You could also use previous versions
(shadow copies) to restore older copies of files and folders.
You can select which disks have System Protection turned on for.
