System Restore points setting question

I use Vista Home premium 32 bit with Vista SP 2

I notice that when I go to check on system restore points created, there are two drives

C Drive

D Drive ( which is system recovery drive)

This is how it shows under system restore

"Create restorepoints on the selected disk/Drive"
C Drive has a check meaning restore points w ill be created
D Drive/Recovery Drive does NOT have a check, meaning NO restore points wll be created

Is this how it should look? That Recovery drive should NOT have restore points created?

Looks proper.

System Restore only applies to the OS which is on drive C.

I'll stop here.

So the fact that my D Drive/Recovery Drive does not have the box checked to create system restore points, is the correct setting ?

Since there is no Windows OS on that drive and System Restore only cares about the OS and not any of our files or those recovery files.
