Please, does anyone know how back up restore points to an external disk. Where restore points are stored and what to copy and what not?




Can I set delete old restore points from the latest but not the oldest?





Can be set to prevent old restore point from being automatically deleted?

1) In a hidden folder named System Volume Information. And no, they cannot be backed up - it would serve no useful purpose



2) Yes, using Disk Cleanup, More Options tab


3) You WANT old restore points deleted. If you want to save a certain instance of your system, use disk imaging software (in fact, you should use disk imaging on a regular basis and forget about System Restore)
