To the original question, I leave it on. As others have said, why wouldn't you and it's a great tool.

Just my two cents.

that's an assumption that is too often faulty...just ask the person who thought they had a virus-free image of their drive.

Total nonsense, who at the end of the day can say they are ever Virus free ?

If it doesn't show up with any scanners your never going to know.

Really weak argument TBH, the person Imagining the HDD has a far better method of fixing issues than someone using System Restore Period.

Yes, for trying to maintain and bring back an entire system that is absolutely correct.

To simply reverse something bad that a program or driver did...drive imaging software is overkill and not really the optimal choice. But hey...if you want to use it for that...that's your right.

Then... the Acronis TrueImage 'Try and Decide' facility, for instance, isn't something you're familiar with then I'll have to presume?

You can Roll Back a Driver without System Restore being enabled (Vista and Win 7 anyhow)

Its one of the things this very forum has in its Tuts for HDD performance.

There is too many "experts" here that seem to think they know better than the person using their PC.

Some of you just need get over the fact we do not all do what you do and that's the end of it, so do not be so quick to tell others there PC is not right.

How do you know ( as I have not stated) that I ain't ever ran System Restore for long periods even years on ME+XP+Vista ?

Stop making assumptions and your tone of posting sucks and I am giving my input as topic asks for.

I am not telling others to do the same unlike you so that makes you a HYPOCRITE.

Your post only makes you look totally clueless and ignorant.
Hmmm...I would say my reputation points disagree with you
