Windows 7: Excluding certain extensions from System Restore

Excluding certain extensions from System Restore

Hi, hope someone can help.

The company I work for writes software and the most important file extension generated by our software is '.LSS'

Unfortunately, until yesterday we never realised that this was one of the monitored file name extensions included in Windows System Restore, as it is assumed to relate to a Lotus product (LotusScript Program file).

I see that in Windows XP it was possible, by editing file %windir%\system32\restore\Filelist.xml to amend this list, but that since Vista this has not been possible.

Unfortunately, some of our customers have 'lost' data as a result of a System Restore, so I am hoping that some expert here might be able to advise of a method either of excluding named folders or editing the list of monitored file name extensions.

Thank you in advance.
