Hi and welcome
If its only a couple of megs dont worry about it. Where are you storing the restore points and backups?
I don't know about restore points and it's the 3.6gb that's in a temp folder off users... I'm coming from w2k and never really got into it's workings. I have 2 harddrives with 2 real partitions each. The first drive has the 100mb system, a 40Gb (C:) OS and 109Gb (E:) for programs/games. The other drive has 10Gb (D:) which I use for some temp stuf and was to be for the swap file and temp stuff, but I decided to leave it where it is for now. And 139Gb (F:) for backup which is where windows has been told to back up to. I have Acronis True Image Home 2010 on order and plan to set it up with continous backup of C: and E: to F:. I also want tosee about backing up to drive space on my linux computer as it can send to ftp, but I put apache on it for a place to put files select people and don't know if it even has ftp or how to set it up. So that is yet to be figured out.
Also, while looking at computer management I noticed that system/C:/E: are listed as drive 2 and D:/F: are listed as drive 1. I thought I got the correct drive for Windows 7 install, but I had to unplug the drives to move some cables and I'm wondering if I got the sata cables swaped when I put them back. Is it possible to simply switch the two sata cables while the system is off and have it come up with all the drives io the correct letters? Don't think that was possible with the old IDE.
