I read the following on the web just now, trying to find out precisely what System Restore saves.
"System Restore monitors most system files with .exe, .vxd, .dll, .com, and .sys extensions. It does not monitor user-created files (for example, files that have .txt, .doc, or .xls extensions), the My Documents folder, Temporary Internet files (including the Internet Explorer History, Cookies, or Favorites files), the Recycle Bin, or the Windows Swap (.swp) file."
Now, this says that System Restore does not monitor user-created files. From the examples given it would not, I gather, monitor the Quicken 99 files I create.
But what exactly does 'monitor' mean? Say I create a restore point today, right now, then install a new program and things go haywire. I go back to the restore point I created before the change. Will the files I created in Quicken still be there intact?
