    If I decided to turn on the sys protection for my Recovery Drive, and create a restore point what would it restore? Is there any point in using sys protection on this particular drive, maybe it would be redundant?

    I currently have sys protection on my main drive.

    No, this is pointless. Since the recovery drive doesn't get modified, nor should it, it's not as if you would need to restore it to a previous state.

    That partition just contains the factory image, System Restore is generally off for those partitions as it shouldn't be needed. It'll also fill up the partition.
