    A question if I may, Its possible to setup restore points on ANY hard drive, how does this procedure know its creating a restor point for the Boot drive ( C) ? thanks
    Hey mate,

    A restore point is created for the OS drive and any drive that you have system protection turned on for.

    The restore point (aka: shadow copy) of each specific drive is saved to the hidden System Volume Information folder of the specific drive the restore point is for.

    You can use option 2 or 3 below to see a list of available restore points to help.

    Sorry, maybe I didn’t explain myself properly.....I meant, why does the procedure outlined create a restore point for the Boot drive ? How does the procedure know it’s Boot drive to create a restore point for as all other HDDs could also have protection turned on

    It's marked as a system partition, so it will be included.

    I didn’t fully understand, so setting Up a scheduled restore point, creates restore points for ALL HDDs with protection set, is that correct ?...thanks, P.S.love your tutorials....could you add to the tutorial for a shortcut to creat a restore point, with a success notification only....don’t need to name it, but be could to see a confirmation.....can restore points be backed up & restored to the original location, in case an update deletes them....perhaps automated backup and a shortcut to restore them to the correct location.....
