Yeah, that is kinda what I'm getting at. Sure I can make a disk image, or, a restore point, but is there a preferred method? For instance, recently there was a number of posts about removing Shark007 and replacing with LAV resulting in a beat up registry... so much so that the solution might well be wipe the c: drive (ssd OS) and reload OS from OEM disk. OK, but, a pita considering once again I'd find myself on page 1
I chose to use the back up in the control panel to burn a disk image onto a usb drive in anticipation of flashing the ssd. If all hell breaks lose, I could always restore from image.
I too am curious how, and what events trigger (or people think should trigger in the case of HTPC perpetual tweaking).
