    Where is the Restore Point located?


    I have created a Restore Point that I titled Restore Point - Oct 2 2017 on my W10 system and would to know where I can find it / where it's located on my computer so that I can delete it when I create new Restore Points?
    Thank you

    Brink's tutorial tells you that...
    Restore points are stored in the hidden protected OS System Volume Information folder in the root directory of each drive you have system protection turned on.
    ...and being heavily protected you can't look inside it. The tutorial tells you how you can delete restore points.

    Thanks guys, my objective is to create a Restore Point on a different HDD than the one that W10 is installed on and if I understand what you guys have said this can't be done, the Restore Point must be on the same HDD as are the files that you create the Restore Point.
    Thank you guys,

    Correct. A restore point can only be store on the same drive.

    The above states at the beginning "The options in this tutorial will not delete a System Image Restore Point that is created when you create a system image."

    Macrium makes a system image of my C drive every day but I never see a restore point created by it.

    Hey Steve, :)

    That's only when you create a system image with the built-in Windows Backup feature instead.

    CCleaner provides a useful option under Tools which lets you delete individual restore points when you run CCleaner from an admin account.
