asked on

SSD drive, want to change restore point save location other than C:

I am setting up an SSD drive as my boot or c: for windows pro 7 x64.
I know that they recommend shutting this off due to it being a space hog.
Is there a way to change the location that it would save to so it could still be used.
I know you can do this with most of the User files through redirect.
But I would like to also still use the restore point.
Thanks.

I had a suspicion that somthing like this would be the case but better to know for sure.

Are there any other OS features, I should be worried about windows 7 running on an SSD drive?

I've herd that there are a few things one should shut off, due to the limited space on the SSD.
>>  due to the limited space on the SSD.   <<   depends on what SSD size.
i have a 160 Gb for the OS, and 1 TB for the rest - runs fine!
thanks nobus,
quick question, did you move all your applications to the 1 TB drive?
If you did move them, how?
Just install them on to the 1TB or did you change the location in window/?
Thanks
no - OS and All programs are on SSD (for speed)
i boot in 30 sec, shutdown also.
software opens in 1 sec..and so on
I have a 128 G, setting up a raid-5 for apps and data.
I know 128 sounds like a lot but some of the development software is huge.  
I almost think they get paid by the size of the install.
That is why I want to put most of the apps on another drive.
A few core items I would put on the boot drive.
That's my basic plan at this point.
>>  I almost think they get paid by the size of the install.   <<  it certainly looks like it; no developer seems interested in shrinking the size of the application, or making it run faster -  that is for the hardware...
and yes, in that case, you have no other  "payable" option..
