Windows 7: Does Home Premium Edition have the System Restored Partition?

Does Home Premium Edition have the System Restored Partition?

Does the Home Premium edition of Windows 7 have the System Restored Partition (SRP) feature?

If it does, I would like to disable the "set active" option because I am using Norton Ghost for disk image recovery. If Home Premium does have the SRP, I would like to create a disk image of it with Norton Ghost.

After looking through the System Recovery Options in the Help files for Windows 7, I didn't come across the exact phrase, "System Restored Partition," but various recovery options are available, such as System Image Recovery (recover the computer using a system image created earlier).

Thanks for a clarification.

Looking at your screenshot you have three System Restored Partitions.

You unhide them in Norton Ghost.
