Windows 7: Question about Restore Settings using System Protection

Question about Restore Settings using System Protection

I have 5 internal hard drives and 3 external drives. For drives other than the drive that has the Windows OS on it, what is the advantage of choosing to restore system settings on the other drives? What system settings would be on those drives. Whenever I create a restore point I always include my Windows OS drive.

I don`t see any reason to restore data drives, if you did they would keep going back to an earlier time, and your recent data would be gone.

I would only have restore enabled on C

And I hope you`re creating disk images.
