Disabling "SytemRestore", does not free disk space.

 I use GHOST to backup  HD on CD-RW's
 for disaster recovery reason.

    To minimize the number of CD's needed
    i disable SytemRestore  before taking backups.

    But it seems that disabling SystemRestore
    does not have any reducing effect on the
    amount of data  to be backed up.

    Ok. i can always to go  into "System Restore" settings and
    pull  the slide down for each partition before taking backups
    then restore settings back after the backup is complete?
    But i forget to do so when if things are hectic.

 Is it possible to  (hmm..) somehow change the way it works,
 (=setting size to 0 set contents to bin zeroes or null when disabled)

 Remove Z to reply.


1. CD "free space" and "used space"

I have a Windows XP Home Edition machine with a Samsung CD-RW/DVD combo
drive.  When I write files to a CD, the "free space" and used space" fields
in the CD Drive Properties are completely inaccurate.

The "free space" and "used space" fields always add up correctly to the
"capacity" but the "capacity" seems to vary depending on the last file I
wrote.  Sometimes it's 80MB and sometimes it's 400MB.

Has anyone experienced this?
