    Restore and Shadow Copy

    What is the difference between System Restore and Shadow Copy? I am familiar with the first, but only came across references to the second recently.

    64bit Win 10 Pro ver 1903 Build 18362.267 and W10 Insider Build 18362.10005 and 18950

    One way of thinking about this in W10 is to consider System restore points as being a shadow copy of the system files while File History is a shadow copy of the Document and Pictures and other user folders that you can select within the File History settings.
