Never turn off System Restore.

Make sure you have a perfect install utilizing the best practices for Win7, based on tens of thousands of installs we've helped with here at the top tech forum. Steps are the same as for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Have a large enough SSD to keep System Restore, Hibernate and Paging file System-managed size, all Programs onboard, only User folders moved off to link via Library - Include a Folder - Windows 7 Forums.

You can also move User Folders - Change Default Location however this will make the data drive a system drive which is forced to be included in a Windows backup image.
