Windows 7: W7 Restore points and XPMODE

W7 Restore points and XPMODE

I have need to run XPMODE under W7 and have it installed. I've been down the path of XP deleting W7 restore points and I would like to know if XPMODE under W7 will delete restore points for W7 and/or W8 when it comes up. Does anyone know if XPMODE will delete restore points for W7?

Hello 52yankee,

XP Mode didn't delete any of my W7 restore points.

It shouldn't since it's a virtual machine and not a dual boot on the host.

Thank you for your reply. I'm affraid I have probably created a problem for myself. The W7 system under which XPMODE will run is in dual boot on my laptop with W8.1. I had the problem between the two systems of the restore points for W8 being deleted by W7 and it is fixed. I am working on a family photo scan project and the scanner and its software only run on XP. I guess I will have to come up with a different approach.

XP Mode shouldn't affect either OS.

Thank you for your assistance. I appreciate it. I tested both W7 and W8 after using XPMODE and all the restore points are intact.
