Windows 7: How do I change which partition restore points+page file are saved to?

How do I change which partition restore points+page file are saved to?

Hi there I am wondering if it is possible for me to change which partition my system restore points AND my page file are saved to.

I am sick and tired of space constantly changing on my C: Drive and would rather the page file and the restore points be saved to a separate hidden partition so this stops happening... and so there is always allocated hidden space just for restore points and the page file.

How do I accomplish this?

System restore points are stored in the "System Volume Information" folder of the drive where the original files are. You cannot change this. It is possible to move the pagefile to a different partition but this is not a good idea unless it is a separate physical drive.

Dang... so there is no possible way for me to change the locaiton of these files to a separate hidden partition... Kinda annoys me but okay then I guess...

What you can do is to disable restore points and make images instead. The images you can store anywhere. But if you image, use this program - it is the best.

Okay... thank you! I will keep this in mind for the near future.
