Windows 10: How do I enable system protection on my secondary HDD? Solved

    How do I enable system protection on my secondary HDD?

    I have disable system protection on my primary (C:\) which is an SSD.

    When trying to enable system protection on my 1TB HDD (E:\), the option is simply greyed out.

    I had hoped to save writes on my SSD to increase it's lifespan, and it appears to be recommended in various SSD optimisation guides. Is it at all possible to enable system restore points to be saved on other hard drives?

    Any tips?

    Hello deathstroke, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Is the drive formatted with NTFS?

    Unfortunately, you can't have restore point saved to one drive for another drive.
