  1. How do I enable system protection on my secondary HDD?


    I have disable system protection on my primary (C:\) which is an SSD.

    When trying to enable system protection on my 1TB HDD (E:\), the option is simply greyed out.

    I had hoped to save writes on my SSD to increase it's lifespan, and it appears to be recommended in various SSD optimisation guides. Is it at all possible to enable system restore points to be saved on other hard drives?

    Any tips?

    :)

    How do I enable system restore on my PC?

    System restore allows users to revert the computer state at a previous point in time. In order for you to enable System Restore on your PC, simply follow the steps below:

    • On Search, type Control Panel.
    • Click on System.
    • On the left pane, select System protection.
    • Click on it to open System Properties.
    • Under System Protection tab, you will see the Protection Settings.
    • Make sure the Protection is set to ON for the system drive.
    • If not, select the System Drive or C Drive and click Configure button.
    • Select Turn on system protection and click on Apply.
