I tried to install the shortcut. But for some reasons, it did not install the way the instructions shown. I probably did something wrong along the way.

Anyway, I have given up and decide to manually create the Restore Points instead.

As I always say, XP is one of the, if not the best OS Microsoft has ever released. I have no problem with system restore, backup with XP but have problems with Win 7. I guess I'll get used to it eventually.

Allocated System Restore space holds far fewer restore points now
I have 8gb of space allocated to System Restore, all monitoring my C partition only. This space is always at least 85-90% used according to the System Protection screen. In the past I have had at least 15 restore points to choose from after ticking "show more restore points." But today I went to...

I work with a large software suite. The installer for this suite is really just a collection of many stand-alone installers. If SR is on when I run the installation, it takes a very long time. Additionally, since this is a collection of other installers, SR is somewhat useless to use as a...
