Greetings,

I see there is a _restore folder in the root directory of my C drive and it take up a significant size of 2 GB from my 20 GB Win Me HD. Is this huge 2 GB size solely used for system restore purpose?

Anyone has successfully restore to an earlier date with the Win Me system restore utility? I have tried this tool on several occasions before but none of the attempts has enabled me to restore to an earlier point in time.

Does system restore only restore the registry settings to an earlier point in time only, i.e its only and sole purpose?

There is a PCHEALTH folder in the Windows directory, anyone know whether this is installed by Win Me OS or other 3rd party program, if so what is the program that generated this folder?

TIA
