Windows 7: Activating an local partition to the protection system in audit mode

Activating an local partition to the protection system in audit mode

HI

I have partitioned a disk into two primary partitions.

On one of them, I installed Windows 7 SP1 Ultimate 64 bit, but, during its installation, I pressed, the Ctrl+Shift+F3 sequence to go in audit mode.

Now, wanting to activate the D local partition to the protection system, I wrote:



or



but the D partition is still deactivated.

Why? So, how can I fix this?

THANKS

Please post back a Screen Shot of your maximized Disk Mgmt drive map with listings.

Why are you trying to mark Active the D partition? Normally you would want the Windows 7 System partition to remain Active since it holds the System boot files.

Perhaps I am not understanding what you mean by "Protection System."

Why, in the D partition, the user profiles will be created. Now, you have understood why I also have to include, in the Protection System, the D partition? So, from the command line, how do I include it?

I see by your Edit that you are trying to enable System Protection on the D drive.

Is D a Data partition? System Restore is not necessary on a data partition since System Restore doesn't restore data anyway, only the OS and Programs.

The best method I know for separate data partitions is to keep Protection turned off so that the latest data set will remain in place if Restore or Reimaging is required to C.

If you still want to Enable System Protection on D then highlight D in System Protection and click Configure to turn it on.

From the Command Prompt and in audit mode, how do I do this? Where I'm wrong?

Why is it necessary to do it this way? Can you not use the Configure button in System Protection?

System Protection on a data only partition is used to support previous versions. That is the only reason you would need it.

That seems like it's important enough to include data partitions.

When you balance having Previous Version of a file available against the amount of disk space it would use and how that might cut down the number and availability of Restore Points, do you advise it?

I use System Protection on my main data partition and take an RP once daily. 11GB on around 500GB of data on a 2TB disk. My currently oldest RP on that disk is dated 4th Feb 2012. I think that is worth it although I have probably only needed it a couple of times this year.

Unfortunately, this task must include it in a script written in Powershell. So, someone could help me to find the error?
