    Hi, are some of you there followed the ERUNT writer's advice of disabling system restore? :rolleyes: :cautious: o_O

    Coz I am still running on my xp's system restore...:blink: even if ERUNT's was already making a daily backup. Do you think the registry was really is the one that should be restored is something wrong happens to our system using ERUNT? o_O

    Here's the excerpt from ERUNT's FAQ:

    "Question: Should I disable Windows XP’s System Restore function when using ERUNT?

    Answer: Yes! Though System Restore backs up more than just the registry, the registry is essentially all you need to revert your system to a previous state. Advantages of ERUNT over System Restore are that each restore folder is standalone and independent of the others, minimizing the risk of restore failures, and that a restore can easily be done from outside Windows. Also, ERUNT backups usually take up less hard drive space than System Restore’s restore points and may be individually deleted at any time."

    I am using it, and have not disabled Windows System Restore. I have not encountered a problem, although I might not recognize anything short of a crash.
