I just recently deactivated system recovery on Vista, which saved me a huge amount of space. But I wonder is it necessary to have it activated? I can't remember that I any time had any use of system recovery anyway. And since it is Microsoft it probably would do a sloppy job anyway or?
This question is for Windows XP, Vista, and 7. Do you have it activated?
You can leave a comment if you have any opinion about the system recovery

Back in the day when I used to use Windows, System Recovery came in handy to solve problems that had me absolutely stumped.
My suggestion is to try to keep this enabled. It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
