  1. Restore Point for Data Only?


    I have Dual Drives on my HP Tower; a SSD where my Operating System and Programs are installed, and a HDD that store all my Documents, Pictures, Music and Videos see picture below:

    Is it possible to use System Restore to Roll Back only the D: Drive to an earlier time if I need to undo some document and picture editing?

    My understanding is that when using System Restore in a Single Hard Drive, that the Roll Back feature will revert the computer Operating Systems setting to an earlier time, without effecting the Data Documents and Pictures. While in this particular case, it is the D: Drive Datas Documents and Pictures that I would like to roll back to an earlier time regardless of effecting my C: Drive.

    The example below shows that I have both the C: and D: Drives Protection Settings turned On, and a couple of Restore Points created, although Im not sure if the D: Drive can be independently set to Roll Back using System Restore would there be a Command Prompt to Roll Back only the D: Drive?

    How to delete inactive System Image Restore Points in System Restore

    Windows 10 64-bit.
    When I click "show more restore points" in System Restore I see a bunch of old "system image restore points" that were deleted in past and do not correspond to any currently active restore points. Clicking any of these old restore points, I simply get an error message saying they could not be found, and to select another restore point instead.I would like to delete these restore points listings but have been unable to do so.
    So far, I have tried steps mentioned below without any luck :

    Disk Cleanup through (CRestore Point for Data Only? :) Properties
    Disable System Protection (OFF and ON) in System Protection for OS (CRestore Point for Data Only? :)
    Disk Space Usage to minimum (slider button all the way to the left then 'Delete all restore points for this drive'),
    Delete all shown Restore points in CCleaner (the problem ones do not show here),
    Reset Windows Backup to Default in Windows 10 with 'Reset_Windows_Backup.bat' utility.

    Any suggestions highly welcome.

    Problem with creating a restore point

    There may be an issue with the registry data of system restore. This can be the reason why you're unable to create a restore point. We will checking the registry data of system restore to see if the data are correct. If not, we may need to edit its data.
    Since we may need to edit the registry, we have to back up it first so that we will have a copy of the data in case something happened to the registry data. You can back up the registry by following the steps
    here. Once you've backed up the registry, follow the steps below to check if the registry of system
    restore are correct:

    • Right click the Windows logo (Start button), and then click Run.
    • In the Run textbox, type regedit.
    • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT
    • Check f you see a folder named SystemRestore. If you cannot see it, you can create one by following these steps:
      • Right-click Windows NT, and then hover your to New.
      • Choose Key.
      • Name the new "Key" as SystemRestore.
    • If you can see the "SystemRestore" folder, click it and check if you can see the DWORD value
      DisableConfig on the right pane. If you just created the "SystemRestore" folder, follow these steps:
      • Click the folder and right-click the space on the right pane.
      • Hover you mouse to New, and then choose DWORD (32-bit) Value.
      • Name the new item as DisableConfig.
    • Right-click "DisableConfig" and select Modify.
    • Change the Value data to 1.

    We'll be waiting for the outcome.
