Hi

I have just installed windows 7 64bit, tried the regedit fix in the registry for Windows XP to stop XP from deleting the restore points but I am not having any joy.

I have x 3 Disks on my system a 500gb disc partioned into 5 sectors with x 2 Windows XP systems one for web browsing and another non internet XP system for running audio programmes such as Cubase. Another 80GB disc which is just a back up space and a new 1TB Dish drive

I have installed Windows 7 on a new 1TB harddrive and as a result in shows on Drive L: in Windows XP installation for My Computer. I have created the offline key in mounted devices and the then created the D-word entry \DosDevices\L: The only thing was when I created the d-word entry I did not have the option to create a 32bit value only a D-word entry in regedit. Also the offline key shows as a folder rather than the "green play" type button as show in the graphic for the tutorial.

Have tried x 3 times with no joy.

Maybe I have missed something but would appreciate anybodys input / help
Hello Bradford, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Sorry, the green play button was just a custom icon I used to help indicate a opened key better. It is indeed a folder by default.

Did you also delete \DosDevices\L: in MountedDevices (step 4A)?

If you did all of the steps exactly in the turorial and still does not prevent XP from deleting Windows 7's restore points, then you could also turn on Bitlocker for the Windows 7 partition while in Windows 7 and not in XP if you have a Windows 7 Ultimate edition installed. Bitlocker will also prevent XP from being able to access the Windows 7 partition and stop XP from deleting the restore points.

Thanks for replying, yes I deleted the \DosDevices\L: as the first stepas per your guide.I'm right in thinking I had to do this when signed into XP and using reg edit in windows XP and not in windows 7.

I had wondered whether the D-Value issue ? and that in windows XP when I create the D-value its not shown as a 32 bit value as in your screen grab?XP has been on the system as dual XP boot for sometime and then I added Windows 7 on the new drive yesterday.

Unfortunately I only have Windows Home Premium so bit locker is not an option, so I'm a bit stumped at the moment..

Hmm, ok.

The "DWORD (32-bit) Value" is only in Vista or Windows 7. You will not see it in XP, but see "DWORD value" instead.

I'm assuming that you applied this in both installed copies of XP. Afterwards, did you create a restore point in Windows 7, check to make sure it's there, restart the computer to XP, then restart the computer to Windows 7 to see if the restore point is still there?

Thanks for clearing up the D-Word issue.

I had only added the registry entry to the web browsing installation and made a restore point in Windows 7 which then got deleted when I booted up the web install of XP.

Would the fact that I had not made an entry into the audio installation of XP delete restore points in Windows 7 even though i had not properly booted into this installation case Windows 7 system restores to be deleted?

regards

At step 4A in Option Two, you would also need to delete \DosDevices\L: if it's listed in the MountedDevices key.
Would the fact that I had not made an entry into the audio installation of XP delete restore points in Windows 7 even though i had not properly booted into this installation case Windows 7 system restores to be deleted?
I wouldn't think so since you didn't boot to that XP, but it wouldn't hurt to do it to this XP installations as well as a test to help rule it out as a cause.

Managed to get it to work!

As things were not working beforehand and I had multiple disk drives I had hidden/disabled the new windows 7 drive from the older x 2 XP installations in systems manager/hardware for both XP installs so as they would not delete any windows 7 system restores.

I then reinput the necessary regedit entries in both XP installs and then renabled the the new drive in both older xp installs and hey presto whilst the L drive is listed in mycomputer you cannot see any data for it and both and system restores are saving fine in windows7.

The only issue I have now is somehting that has been mentioned on an earlier forum to do with the intel PCI Simple Communications Controller to run the intel desktop utilities in windows 7. will post something on the forum for that

PCI Simple Communications Controller - Windows 7 Forums

thanks again!

Well I turned off my computer for awhile to get some fresh air, and I booted into Xp and logged in and I went to my computer and now instead of having one partition named "Acer" (C: ) and another named "Local Disk" (D: ) I have 2 named "Local Disk" and the C: one has 0 bytes.

Will I found out my system restore points are not being deleted anymore, I guess that the fake C drive (because when Ichecked it's properties it says 0 bytes free and 0 bytes used) is preventing Xp from deleting win7's system restore points.

Brink, I wonder if I might add to this old thread. I have a Vista HP 32-bit dual booting with W8 and had the same restore point problem - and your solution worked!! What a life saver! However, I also have an XP Pro dual boot with W8 and I can't use the solution: when in the XP OS, the partition with W8 is not showing in MyComputer, so I can't identify it, to add something to the registry. Might you have any ideas for me? or, point me in the right direction please? Thanks so much for your help.

Hello Simrick, and welcome to Vista Forums. :)

I've noticed that with Windows 8, it's also best to make sure that each OS is set to not have System Protection turned on for the other OS, and not for any same drives.

For example, in Windows 8, make sure that System Protection is only turned on for the Windows 8 drive, and not for the XP drive. You would also not want to have System Protection turned on for the same drive in both Windows 8 and XP at the same time.

Hello Simrick, and welcome to Vista Forums. :)

I've noticed that with Windows 8, it's also best to make sure that each OS is set to not have System Protection turned on for the other OS, and not for any same drives.

For example, in Windows 8, make sure that System Protection is only turned on for the Windows 8 drive, and not for the XP drive. You would also not want to have System Protection turned on for the same drive in both Windows 8 and XP at the same time.
Hi Brink. Thanks so much for your fast reply. I did as you suggested and turned off the system restore for the XP partition in the W8 OS. I also figured out that I had to "assign" a drive letter to the W8 partition (whilst in the XP OS) before I could do the registry hack and tell XP not to mount it. It appears to have worked! Thanks - you're the best!

Hello rdwray,

If you like, you could turn it back online in Disk Management while you need it, but just be sure to turn if back offline when finished to prevent the restore points from being wiped out. :)

If I get this right: I can re-enable the access to the drives with Disk Management and not lose the restore point; question, it there a way to run a program (.reg) on shutdown to automatically change the registry setting?
