Aside from the hard drive space required, is there any reason to not have all hard drives set with protection "On" (in Windows 7)?
Recently I learned that in order to do a System Restore on a particular drive, the System Protection for that drive must previously have been set to "On". My system has 4 internal and 2 external hard drives. Is there any downside to having all of them set in the "On" position?
I realize that System Restore does not affect data files and as far as I know, my five non-C: drives contain only data. However, is there anything related to extra drives (eg how data is recorded or stored) which might need to be altered during a System Restore?
