Hello soulfood,

System Restore is part of System Protection. You can turn System Protection on or off for any NTFS HDD you have, but the restore points can only be stored/saved on the same HDD that you have System Protection turned on for and no other HDD.

System Protection - Turn On or Off

Hope this helps,
Shawn

It is not limited to internal HDD you can turn system protection on foe external HDDs as well. Naturally for any disk that does not have system files on it you can only use this for "Previous Versions" Previous Versions - Restore Files and Folders

Oops, that's correct Keith so long as they are NTFS. Thank you.
