System Restore Question
« on: February 21, 2012, 08:20:43 PM »
Howdy
I know all about system restore and the system volume information folder but my question is everytime I right click on an exe(progam installer) windows adds it to the above folder-I did not open the file just right clicked and went to properties to see what version it is(was) why does it wind up in that folder? My system is running fine and tested system restore and it is working just wondering....

Honestly I have no clue :tongue:

Must just be the way MS made things work. Backup the programs and files that you touch.

Thanks Shane
it never did this before(I dont think does your system do this?) You probably use 7 but maybe somone could test it by right clicking a program then looking in the system volume folder(hidden have to unhide then check show protected operating system files-we will see maybe someone with XP could try it please?
