You can`t save restore point to a location other than the system default path. Unless there is a program that deletes your restore point, it`s not necessary too..

What you can do is create a backup of the system to a removable disk, so you can restore your files & folders in case of system failure or HDD crash.

BETTER would be to use the Back up feature and make a Drive Image that you can use to restore the entire partition if needed to that exact point in time. You should also make a 'Windows 7 Repair Disk' so that if the Windows installation ever becomes unbootable you will be able to do a System Restore, a Start Up Repair, or reload from the image you just made (just boot to the repair disk). If you also keep a current normal back up then you can then bring your personal files back to an even more current state even if the Image is months old or your personal files are on a different drive.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

"what is the default system locationn which i can take/ copy it to my safe location"

Restore points are kept in a hidden folder called "System Volume Information" so they can't be tampered with. To even see the folder, you will have to edit your folder options to show "all hidden files & folders" & show "protected operating system files". But if you attempt to open the SVI folder, you will be greeted by "Access is Denied".
