I think it's the backup package that's only in Business and Ultimate

Nope Backup is in 'Home Premium' too

You may rest assured that home premium contains the restore capability.....I'd get rid of your advisor! :)

System restore is in all versions of Vista. Whoever told you this must have been referring to the Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore. I am Spartacus is right.

"Windows Vista Business, Ultimate, and Enterprise come with a more advanced backup and restore utility called Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore. This program allows you to create an entire backup of your computer that can be used to restore your computer in the case of system-wide failure. Unlike the standard backup and restore feature that comes with all the versions of Windows Vista, Windows Complete PC Backup and Restore allows you to not only restore your data but also the complete operating system and other critical system files."

System Restore is available in all versions and retains all restore points for 136 years (I'm not joking) This time span can be changed in the registry.

Back up is also included in all versions, but with different features according to the version you have. The full version of backup, as installed with Ultimate, includes a facility similar to TrueImage or Ghost. This is not available with the home versions.

Just asked were it came from and was told microsoft, have just read it after l put in a search for vista and system restore, wish l could put a link in for you but just changing my email provider.
But l have just read it from microsoft as was hoping they were wrong. Have just tried it and l get to the last screen and anything that should be in the middle is blank and l left it for a bit and it was still there 24 minutes later and nothing had moved.
Backing up files it said in this article was ok in basic and premium. Have a seach as l want it as usd it a bit on xp
