Windows 7: Choose a hard-drive to monitor for restore

Windows 7
Choose a hard-drive to monitor for restore

Hi there,

Sorry for my english, i've try to search the forum before posting this, but my english is not very good, so it's very hard to exacly find what i'm looking for.

I've install a fresh Windows 7, but like XP, I want to choose the hard-drive to monitor for a possible "restore". Example, i want to restore my computer 3 days ago. The problem is I have few partition and I don't want to windows restore old file too from the other partition.

But in Windows 7, I don't see anywhere this option to choose the drive to monitor and the drive to NOT monitor, like this:

C:\ monitor is ON
D:\ monitor is OFF
E:\ monitor is OFF
F:\ monitor is OFF
G:\ monitor is OFF

In other word, I just want to Windows monitor ONLY the drive C.

Thanks alot, hope you all understand what i mean!
