system restore on ME
Do tell what is the advantage to disabling sys restore on W/ME. Does it boost performance??? what is the downside to disabling this feature??? If this feature will restore my sys why would you want to turn it off. Please clarify... Thx
The performance boost is nice, + you can delete the '_restore' folder in system root which can take quite a bit of space. (I had my system restore maximum disk space usage set to 200mb and still the folder was using 1.3gb)
The function of system restore is that you can go back to a functioning configuration if you mess the system up. It's quite a hassle though, as the system restore loses the points quite fast. I made a restore point, with sufficient disk space available for system restore and after 2weeks it was gone...
Turn it off, if you don't plan to break the system
An interesting thing I've noticed:Gateway ships its ME boxes with Adaptec' GoBack utility.
You think Gateway is saying somthing about the reliability of ME's system restore thingamabob?
system restore is a joke the one time I could have used it I could not get it to run and had to do a reinstall anyway turn it off your system will run a lot smoother with out that **** lol
Mine's off, takes up waaaaaaaaaaay too much space. I just use Norton's Ghost.
I tried it once during the whole month that I gave ME a chance and it seemed to work fine. But I definately Norton's Ghost or PowerQuest's Image Program.
have been trying to use Disk clean security
and it advise's that system restore should be disabled, before comencing.
So could any of you guys tell me how to disable system restore in ME, and how to re enable it also.Thanks BUMTY
Well I personally like the restore function and cant see myself ever disabling it...the only problem i ever had with it was once when I installed a second hard drive (just for fun/experimentation)..when I had the 2nd hard drive on there, the restore function would put a folder n that drive, which I didnt really want. With 30G hard drives being pretty common nowadays, I cant see an argument against restore function based on it taking up space though. Keep it, maybe it'll get you out of a tight spot one day.
Right click my computer->choose properties->Performance tab->Misc or whatever the last tab is ->There's an option to disable system restore.
I have a 30gb drive, it's constantly filled, thus deleting the system restore folder made it back functional
Cheers muno, thanks to you i have cleaned my hard drive at least to some degree, you would not believe the trouble i have had. so thanks a lot. BUMTY
