I noticed that when I made my first Backup image (per Win 7 OS and not third party software) that it created a system restore point. If I wanted to delete all system restore points will I still be able to use that recovery image should I need it? In other words, are the OS-created images and system restore somehow integrated and dependant upon one another? I think the answwer is no, but I want to make sure just in case.
FWIW, i installed Acronis True Image 2010 and would like to disable system restore altogether once I get the feel for this OS
