    windows 10, restore points location

    Hi Gray,

    System restore points can only be viewed in the System Properties when restoring to a point where the computer is working fine. To do so, navigate to Create a restore point (type it in the Cortana search bar and press Enter) > System Restore and follow the
    on-screen instructions. If there are no restore points, the System Restore button is grayed out.
    Feel free to post back if you have other inquiries

    Have you tried looking for the system restore points on your PC's hard drive? Ever found them?

    No, I thought not. Apparently they are stored in the (hidden and 'access denied') 'System Volume Information' folder - so, no, there's probably no way to move that to another drive.

    There is only one situation where Microsoft does create a system restore point on another drive but it's not exactly the answer you were looking for. If you have used Backup & Restore to create a system image on an external drive, you can run System Restore and tick the 'show more restore points' box. It will then, in addition to the locally stored restore points, list the one stored with each system image. You can restore one of these just as you would a local one.

    Just wondering why you'd want to do that?

    A System restore point secures a limited set of changes to the registry, drivers, system files, installed programs etc..
    The disk space used is carefully controlled and limited.
    There seems little point in keeping the restore points for a Windows partition elsewhere.
    Restoration sometimes fails for obscure reasons.

    As commented by others, the routine use of disk imaging is much more complete, far more robust and far better supported.

    an inquiry on system restore point?

    You are right about where the files are, just did a new one about 10 minutes ago and checking the date and time when that Folder was changed confirmed that is the location. One might be able to copy the files for storage elsewhere but probably would have to put them back before doing a restore, could get complicated. Regedit has an Export feature in File that can create the file in a different location, for testing just did mine, about 338MB in size and put it on the D:/DATA partition.

    If one wants to see all the IE temp files go to C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache, You'll have to change the Folder to to show Protected Operating System files but be sure to set it back.
