    I've just built a w7/64 system with an SSD. I dont want to use w7 system restore as it only lets you put restore points on the C drive.
    I've downloaded SRMW7 and ran it to create a restore point on drive X (my backup hard drive)
    It insisted on enabling windows restore points and created the restore point on drive C.
    Followed the tutorial, then tried it again with the same results.
    Also the link for Lee at deviantart is dead.

    Just installed this on my new system. I had disabled system restore to prevent it using my SSD. Now I can let it use another drive. Why didnt microsoft do this? Thanks LW.

    The author of this tool has not responded for several years.
    Is Lee W still around?

    I am using it and I have missing restore points. Not right away, but after a couple days, they are all gone.
    Trying to find the problem.

    I also need to know if this program does anything by itself. Or does it sit there waiting for me to launch it?

    He sure isn't.
    You would think he would still be getting his emails.

    I wonder if he's actually dead?
    Does anyone know?

    Which emails ?
    Have you sent emails to him via the forum ?
    Sending emails doesn´t work at the moment, there is an error somewhere, i suspect in the email-server settings.

    Copied from my post here: http://forum.thewindowsclub.com/wind...tml#post172132

    "System Restore is not reliable, i´m not using it anymore.

    I had problems after installling some upgrades, so i used system restore to "go back in time".
    But after restoring, windows-update still told me that i had a few updates installed,
    which is impossible since they were installed after the system restore point was created !?
    I knew that without checking the date, but when i looked at the list of installed upgrades i saw several dates after the system restore point was created,
    which of course should be impossible.

    And my computer crashed....
    I had to rebuild the system, reinstall the O/S, all updates from Microsoft, all software....

    A much better and reliable method is to use (FREE) imaging software like fx. Macrium Reflect to create and restore the system.
    I recommend it.
    I started using it 7 years ago, after reading what other users who had used it for many years had to say about it.
    It´s easy to understand, and it works...

    Macrium Reflect Free
    "

    Note: I mean the operating system´s built-in System Restore-function, not the manager.
