Can I add/modify the files in the System State Backup folder 'IDSystemStateData'?
No. It is not advisable to add/modify the files that are present in the System State Backup folder 'IDSystemStateData'. Any modification made to files in this folder would adversely impact your System State restore operations.

You can also choose the location to which you want to restore from among the options provided: Original location/Alternate location/Single folder.
Click 'Start Restore' to initiate the restore operation. If you specify the location to be 'Original location', the System state restore operation overwrites the current System State. To avoid this, specify the location as 'Alternate location'.
