    Ah it's in the subject line.

    Yes, other thins is does and doesn't backup can be important.

    www.google.com
    search for
    windows restore point contents
    finds -

    http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_restore.htm
    Introduction, Detail, Design Overview, Automatically Created Restore
    Points, System and Application File Change
    Monitoring Restore Process, What's Restored and What's Not,
    Interoperation with Other Windows XP Recovery Features, Files Monitored
    and Restored by System Restore. For detailed information click here
    (see URL for avtive link).

    The following are restored when you use System Restore to restore your
    system to a previous time using a restore point:

    Registry
    Profiles (local only—roaming user profiles not impacted by restore)
    COM+ DB
    WFP.dll cache
    WMI DB
    IIS Metabase
    Files type which are monitored by System Restore as specified in the SDK
    available from
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/sr/sr/monitored_file_extensions.asp.

    The following are not restored by System Restore:

    DRM settings
    Passwords in the SAM hive.
    WPA settings (Windows authentication information is not restored)
    Specific directories/files listed in the Monitored File Extensions list
    in the System Restore section of the Platform SDK e.g. 'My Documents'
    folder.
    Any file types not monitored by System Restore like personal data files
    e.g. .doc, .jpg, .txt etc.
    Items listed in both Filesnottobackup and KeysnottoRestore
    (hklm->system->controlset001->control->backuprestore->filesnottobackup
    and keysnottorestore) in the registry.
    User-created data stored in the user profile
    Contents of redirected folders


    Quite a few Microsoft articles, as it's a MS feature.
