    Is there a way to change path of System Restore ?

    I have two HD's, my primary drive is a 74gig Raptor and second storage HD is 120gig Maxtor. I only want the OS, programs and games on the Raptor. My swap file is on the Maxtor.

    Is there a way I can still monitor C: Drive with System Restore but have it put the files on my storage drive instead of C: drive ?

    that is a good question. Also, what about if I want to keep a specific restore point (like, system as just set up)

    Found this on more than one website:

    Restore point location

    Any Restore Points that are created either manually by you or automatically by your OS are stored under C:\System Volume Information. You won’t be able to change the location of this folder and if you’re using an NTFS-formatted partition you won’t be able to access these folders, either.
    Doesn't look promising!

    great. (Not )
    Imagine how easy would be to fix your system if you restore back to day 1. That would be great

    Yes, you can change the path of system restore by sending me your computer. It will restore in Washington - - mine bad?

    Ok, but since you have trouble with shipping maybe I should deliver it myself...hold on I need to plow the snow from the driveway.

    Oh almost forgot, since your car is also broken is it ok if I give you my Cougar with the PC ?

    I'll bring my mountain bike so I can get back home

    Thanks for the offers. Does the Cougar have the 351C? I'll take it. Instead of mountain biking home, why don't you ride your red rocket?
