SSD Turn-off System Restore: Why ?

Back to two HDDs.

I had reason this morning to just go back one System Restore; didn't even need to figure out what I changed.

"Useful SSD Articles" page advises to turn off System Restore with SSDs. Why? What if we didn't? Can't we just keep the restore files on HDD with the OS image and so forth?

  1. To minimize writing to the SSD! System restore writes to win folder.

    Sure, but does it really write that much? Typically I have maybe 10 -- maybe -- restore points a month. I don't know.

    I typically have only one which is called a backup, never ever used restore.
  4. I am certain there is a reason it can't be that way, but I wish the Windows restore feature had the option to be stored on another drive.
