Assume my drives are all NTFS and my boot partition is C and my secondary drive is D (but could be more).
I have chosen to let SR monitor C but not D.
I know how to maintain SR, troubleshoot problems of my caliber, done the reading about what SR does and doesn't do, and all that, but I do like to learn, but don't need too many warnings about my questions I am quite happy with my SR situation.
I seek repeatable ammunition to successfully explain/disarm issues that have some up more than once for me. I can get past most of them eventually, but more opinions/experiences are welcome on how other folks handle these situations:
I will mix in some of my own questions as I play the belligerent, uninformed consumer:
This is my computer, I payed for it, everything is legal and why can't I open this SVI folder and why are these things hidden from me as an Administrator, etc. I am not in control here. Whatever this SVI folder is, it is huge and I don't like it.
(That part I can deal with)
I turned off monitoring on my D drive, but I still have see an SVI folder with some RP folders that contain change.log.1 and RestorePointSize files. I am not monitoring D so why are these folders and files even here?
If I turn off SR and do whatever I have to do to delete the SVI folders from both drives will the SVI folders both be created again automatically on reboot? I don't like it.
Is there a way for me not to never have SVI folders created on either or both drives? How about maintaining just SR on C and never have an SVI folder on my unmonitored drives? I'll never want to use SR for my unmonitored drives (I don't think) and don't want this SVI folder.
What are these two files doing in every RP folder on my unmonitored D drive? I don't like anything about this SVI folder on my unmonitored drives.
Tell me the good reasons to enable SR on my secondary drive? If I restore, isn't it just things on the C drive that are restored?
(This one slays me:)
System Restore failed and I don't know why. I was advised that I can do a "manual" system restore by just copying the 5 registry files from my RP\snapshot folder into C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG. This is what a System Restore does anyway, right?
