Win 7 Home Premium
 
 

My Win 7 Home Premium came pre-installed on a Toshiba Satellite. I am in the process of configuring options and installing applications, so I want to understand the implications of options. My questions are as follows:

Q1. The Protection Settings section of the System Protection tab of the System Properties window shows two items: the C drive, and something called System. Protection is turned ON for the C drive, but not for System (see screenshot below). What is "System"? Should protection be turned on for System (pro & con)?

Q2. I created some manual Restore points at key times during installation, but I did not see them among the Restore versions when I restored a previous file. Shouldn't they be listed by the names I gave them during creation? If so, any tips for why they don't appear?

Q3. What determines when automatic Restore points are created? Is that a configurable option?
