    from my experiance its not all that its cracked up to be.

    last weekend or the one before, system restore would onlyu let me access that day, even though it has restore points before that. i gave up and formatted the hard drive.

    also some times when i have used it , it goes through the motions and then says something like "sorry nothing has been changed"

    My advice is don't rely on System Sestore as your primary back up, you could be very dissapionted when you most need it!

    i wasnt relying on it, i have back ups but thatyt will not change any settings that have occured, when system restore works it does change the settings you do not know about back to what they were
