One of the coolest features of WinXP is System Restore utility. Unfortunate (like many other MS utilities) it's not customisable. What I mean: SR does much of a "backup image" job, it takes a snapshot of the monitored disk at the given time, then, when needed, perform a rollback. The problem is (especially if you use only one partition) that SR monitores ALL the files and folders on a specified partition. For that reason, if you do a restore, beside the replacement of the corrupted files, you will lose ANYTHING new you added since the restore point! I have personally the pleasure to lose a 25MB d/l file after such an operation . So my question is if there is a way to make SR to monitor/restore only specific folders/files on the disk (like Windows, Program Files, Documents and Settings)?
