Can you save your XP PRO restore points to CR-R or CR-RW discs. Thank You

A good question. I dont think you can really as the Restore Points sytem is a bit complex, could be wrong though.

Have a read of this article (http://www.tek-tips.com/gviewthread.cfm/lev2/67/lev3/70/pid/779/qid/647742), which ia answering another question but describes how the system works.

It would be good to be able to do so though, and it would save a lot of drive space. Maybe someone can come up with how to do it.

Even though I use System Restore quite a lot myself, for serious system backups I use Ghost to create images of my partitions. It is far better and the images can be stored onto CDs.

A search on the forum for 'Ghost' will turn up lots of valuable info. :-)
