    Do we need to keep system protection on for system reserved partition


    I have kept the system protection on for my OS Drive i.e C drive. In case something bad happen, I can restore to earlier restore point.My query is that should I keep the system protection on for system reserved partition also. This is for the knowledge purpose, otherwise I am already having Macrium Reflect.

    The Reserved Partition is used by your computer when it boots. It is hidden and has no drive letter. It is not used by Windows. It makes sense that System Restore does not cover it. BTW, if you go to System Protection settings the Reserved Partition is not even shown.
