Backup and Restore System Restore Files

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.configuration_manage (More info?)

Hi.
Because of the amount of space the System Restore Files take, is it
possible to copy them to a CD and later
copy them back and have the same restore point functionality???

    No. You could use the Disk Cleanup tool to remove all but the newest
    Restore Point if your system currently runs well. In the Control Panel

    is reserved for this feature.
