Windows 7: Privileges problem after clean re-install

11 Jun 2011   #11

Windows 10 Pro x64 x3, Ubuntu

System protection (restore points, previous versions Etc), can be a useful aid to running a system but to be truthful restore points do not protect data files so is redundant on a pure data drive. previous versions may be useful but again if you run a proper backup system it is possibly an overhead that is less important.

Windows 7 Ultimate RTM (Technet)

Turn system protection back on after you fix whatever you need to fix. You only need to have it off for a few minutes.
