Disable Or Enable Windows Vista System Restore

Post A Comment

System Restore is a system recovery feature of Windows that creates snapshots, or restore points, of the state of your computer at various intervals or before you perform a certain task.Whenever users install software program, drivers, updates, hotfixes and other system changing files, Windows Vista will create Restore Point by using System Restore, part of System Protection feature, where a snapshot and stored state of important system files are backed up and copied using Shadow Copy Service. It anything goes wrong such as driver not working or program causes instability to the system, users can easily rollback to the previous state.The major advantage of turning off Windows Vista system restore feature is to free up space on your hard disk and increase your computer performance.The major disadvantage is that you will lose your restore points all together and you can’t restore your computer to a previous date.

  • Click OK
