    It seems to me that W7's System Protection now functions like the old "Go Back" , which made a backup of one's files, as well as Windows' system files.

    How can I configure W7's S P to leave user files [ not only "my docs", but <user>\app data . . . . , favorites, desktop ]?

    I used W7's System Protection on my W7 Pro, 32 bit system, to return to a restore point I had made before installing a program, but it either modified or deleted files modified or created after the restore point was made, after uninstalling the program and returning to the manually created restore point.

    Does "USERPROFILE" include <user>my documents ?

    User Account Control was set to minimum.

    System is single boot.

    System was upgrade from Vista Ultimate 32 bit.
