    Will disabling "File History" affect System Restore?


    I have no need for the File History feature in Windows, if I disable it, will that affect System restore since it can't keep records of files or they have nothing to do with each other and I can safely disable it?

    Hi, File History is off on mine, and System Restore works fine. I see no reason for any relationship.

    No, but note File History can be unreliable.
