    Backing up Restore points

    It appears (Google) that restore points are stored in the System Volume Information folder. Could I then back up that folder and be creating a backup of System Restore points? UNderstanding the "dangers" of this approach, at least one would have access to the files if they really needed them.

    Well OK then. Windows ought to make it so at least they don't disappear or are deleted.

    The only TrueBlue OS backup is: OS partition full image backup; Macrium Reflect or Acronis True Image are just two of many free and fee programs available.

    @CWBillow: I am intrigued by your question. Why would you want to back up Restore Points? I would imagine keeping full system backups would be more efficient?
