Does anyone actually use Restore Points?

It's always the 1st thing I disable after a fresh install.

I did with XP for a while. I was always concerned that I would screw things over with it, after I noticed my disk space going and doing a quick google, I quickly turned them off.

I don't use the restore feature of XP.

I keep drive images so that I can be sure that when I want to step back it will be done properly.

Incremental backups keep the size down.

Sounds like you use your PC for reasons other than recreation mate. :)

Personally, my PC is a toy, if it fooks up I start again :)
