7.7, Cache files, and the System recovery partition


Recommended Posts

Installing Windows 7 and allowing it to control disk space allocation during installation creates a 100MB hidden System Recovery partition. If I do a full, recycle backup with Cache files included, I get this partition in addition to the C: drive.


If I disable Cache files in the scrpt Options, since Retrospect documentation says they are unneeded for a complete system resore, will the Recovery partition, and everything it needs, be backed up?


Disabling Cache Files seems the only way to stop Retrospect from backing up the Restore Point and/or VSS Shadow files which can cause a 3-GB backup even if no files have changed.
