Restore points in W7 appear to be a problem some/all of mine disappear probably at reboot (not fully sure but it seems so). It does appear to be an issue with W7 and others have reported it on the web.

If I can I like to have dual boot with one o/s for maintenance which makes taking an image of the main system and retrieving it very simple. I have not done this with my "music" PC just because I like to keep it as simple as possible.

I was just wondering if anyone uses dual boot with XX and does it work OK? or more to the point could it affect SQ or reliability?

Paul, I use Dual Boot as long as I can remember. If that influences SQ somehow, it only tells me that I can have better SQ again. Not that I would know how of course.

Further see here : Minimized OS and Restore Points W7 (merely the second part where the pictures begin).
